Visions of the past: the graphic design student as historian
Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceeding › Conference contribution
The paper introduces the conceptual model upon which we based our teaching. Informed by the ideas of “postmodern” historians and thinkers (Linda Hutcheon, Hayden White, etc.), we discuss our term “Vistoriography” and how it enabled us to focus on three key issues: an alignment of theory and practice in the studio space; a focus on the role of the graphic designer as communicator of historical narratives; and the physical process of “designing” history. We then reflect on the successes and obstacles encountered thus far. Here, we discuss the differences – in terms of historical subjects, self-perception and political awareness – between UK and Germany students, and conclude by posing some questions for future development.
