Call for Papers
Certain objects, through their intimate interaction with the human body, invite embarrassment, discomfort or even disgust in the beholder. From the merkin, to the pessary, from anatomical figurines to thumbscrews, these objects hover on the margins of art and visual culture, and bridge the gap between the everyday and the uncanny. This conference, from 20-21 April at Aalto University, will be a forum for researchers from throughout Europe who investigate uncanny objects in the Early Modern world. We invite papers on objects whose relationship with the human body has led them to be overlooked, marginalised or completely avoided in previous scholarship. The conference aims to investigate the extraordinary potential of the mundane, question the boundaries of art history and material culture, and examine the relationship between body, object, and art.

Pearl Academy, the premium design education institute in India and a member of Laureate International Universities is hosting a world café style international confluence “What’s Next: Impact of Design” to be held on 23 February 2017 in New Delhi, India.
Design is transforming the business, re-shaping management thinking, and fostering social innovation by questioning the ‘Why’ of a problem. Would Design have the capability to lead the change as it can conflate across all disciplines? Can design positively impact the world of tomorrow and its problems?” Would the role of the designer be that of a connectivist, who establishes and fosters links between different disciplines? The confluence will address these questions under following themes:
• Impact on society
• Impact on industry
• Designing education
• Design for nation building
As a part of this confluence, we have also rolled out the ‘CALL FOR IDEAS’ for design professionals, academicians and students. These competitions are:
– for students: ideas on “Impact of Design on Society and Culture”
– for Professionals/ academicians: design pitch on “Design for Nation Building”
