Interior Design Symposium: Fostering Identity, Diversity, & Connectivity (Department of Interior Architecture)
The goal of this symposium is to explore important facets of the discipline of Interior Design (ID) by bringing together scholars and practitioners to advocate for professional identity, support cultural diversity through design, encourage global connectivity and foster interdisciplinary exchanges.
The symposium investigates a contemporary issue significant to the field of ID. The intention is to explore research and theory that comes other disciplines to help advance the profession of ID. Our goal is to imagine a world with responsible, sustainable and inclusive built environments and take decisive actions to begin creating such a future. Thus, we will aim to:
1) connect researchers across divergent and dispersed fields,
2) provide a platform to collaborate and to define a common set of interests and research questions, and
3) establish a new direction for ID research, scholarship and practice.

Identities and Inequalities

This year we invite papers that critically engage with identity and inequality research, broadly defined. This convivial conference is intended to motivate interested individuals to present their original research, whether in its formative or finished stage. We hope that this space and the interactions it offers will also strengthen the participant’s research and audience conveyance for future publication or conference presentations. We invite papers from students, scholars, practitioners, and activists engaged in these topics. Potential topics may include, but are not limited to:
• Diaspora, Transnationality or Migration
• Study of Difference (e.g. Race, Ethnicity, Gender or Queer Studies, etc.)
• Marxist Theory
• Biopolitics or Biopower
• Social Movements
Abstracts should be submitted via the conference website by January 31, 2016. Accepted papers will be organized topically by the conference organizing committee.
