Visiting Professor: Grace Lees-Maffei

5 Sep

In addition to Katja Kwastek as new professor of art history, at the start of this academic year we also welcome Grace Lees-Maffei as Visiting professor of Design Theory and History. Her research interests centre upon the mediation of design, through channels including domestic advice literature, corporate literature, advertising and magazines; her PhD is entitled Modern Living? Domestic Advice Literature and Design Discourse in Postwar Britain. Grace Lees-Maffei will mostly teach courses in the MA programme Design Cultures; those courses can also be followed by VAMA students as electives.

On 12 September, Grace Lees-Maffei wil be giving her first lecture on “Design, History and Culture.”
