Deadline for submissions: 21 June 2015

As you may recall we launched the Journal “The Radical Designst” http://www.iade.pt/designist/ in 2007 producing 4 issues and one book. We are now re-igniting the journal with two special issues initiating a new life for such an important editorial endeavour.

The first one will result from a selection of papers from the forthcoming conference Senses & Sensibility in the right place, Design as a Trade - http://www.iade.pt/unidcom/senses2015/.

The second will result from a special call: DESIGN POLICIES: BETWEEN DICTATORSHIP AND RESISTANCE that you can find just below.

Special issue of The Radical Designist AKA Reader’s Designist Magazine.
Co- Editors Helena Souto, Eduardo Côrte-Real

The Radical Designist, UNIDCOM’s Journal on Theory and History of Material Culture is calling for papers for a special issue related with the research project: "Design in Portugal (1960-1974): the actions, actors and repercussions of the Art, Industrial Architecture and Industrial Design Nuclei of the National Institute of Industrial Research (I.N.I.I.)"[“Design em Portugal (1960-1974): acções, intervenientes e repercussões do Núcleo de Arte e Arquitectura Industrial e do Núcleo de Design Industrial do Instituto Nacional de Investigação Industrial (I.N.I.I)]

During Cold War in peripheral countries and regions, like the Iberian peninsula, Eastern Europe or Latin America, Design was, not only a discipline related with industrial development and modernization, but also, due to its DNA, social insertion and ethics, an instrument of resistance to dictatorships.

The purpose of this special issue is to contribute to a panoramic view over the impact of design policies in the internationalization of economies and social professional change during the /Cold War, but /especially how design contributed to the values of democracy both political and social in this period, mainly in the 1960 ‘s and 1970’s. This call proposes also to cover processes in which “democracies” were subjected to authoritarian dictates over minorities either social or political.

In the case of Portugal, the country was one of the founders of EFTA (European Free Trade Association) in 1960, a first sign of the New State's dictatorship concern with exportation and foreign markets. However, another sign of the Cold War, the Portuguese colonial conflict, and a counter insurgence notion of social development contributed to create a market in Africa.In consequence, the Portuguese economy witnessed an enhancement of its industrial sector. By developing these activities, some enlightened industrials and designers believed that a metadesign approach in the Portuguese industry could contribute to the transformation of the regime and conduce to the achievement of democratic governance.

In consequence, the late 1960’s early 1970’s witnessed the emergence of a new professional starting to be designated as “designer”. The transfer of methodological knowledge from “Democracies” to “Dictatorships”, determined by the need of modernization, carried out also an ideological democratic insemination that helped to corrode the Regime’s structural foundations.
