Raizman, David, and Carma R. Gorman, editors,
Objects, Audiences, and
Literatures: Alternative Narratives in the History of Design
This book of essays in the history of design stems from papers delivered at a
session for the 2005 Annual College Art Association Conference held in Atlanta
Georgia. Subsequent to the CAA conference, I was asked to submit a proposal
dealing with the theme of literature and design which resulted in the expanded
essays in this book. Carma Gorman, Associate Professor in the School of Art and
Design at Southern Illinois University (Carbondale), kindly agreed to serve as
co-editor, and a relevant essay by Elizabeth Guffey, Associate Professor of Art
History at SUNY Purchase, was included.
The text below is from the back cover of the book.
