International Design for All Fundation Award

02 January / 2014

We are pleased to announce the opening of call for entries to the International Design for All Foundation Awards 2014. The deadline for submitting entries is 2 January 2014.

If your work demonstrates that the implementation of design for all/universal design contributes to improving quality of life for everyone, it deserves international recognition. That’s why we have introduced a new step this year: from now on we will recognise all the Good Practices which meet the criteria and which can act as an example for others seeking to implement design for all in their own areas of activity.

Of the Good Practices selected, an international jury will choose the 5 “Best Practices” to be presented with the International Design for All Foundation Award. These will be the stand-out projects which show the way forward for better practice in design for all/universal design in future.

The award ceremony will take place on 12 February 2014 during Urbaccess: the European exhibition of accessibility and universal design, in Paris.

Don’t miss this opportunity to let the world know about your Good Practice!

CFP: Agein and the Humanities Seminar in NYC

15 November / 2013

Dominant representations of old age depict it as a period of debilitation
and decline, frailty and dependence, isolation and loss of selfhood. Other
accounts emphasize the experience of exceptional lucidity, insight, and
wisdom that accompanies aging. This seminar invites participants to
rethink and interrogate these two descriptive poles and attempt a more
critically nuanced engagement with aging and old age. Papers can address
aging from different humanistic and theoretical perspectives and
approaches. They can also consider literary and filmic representations of
aging that go beyond the accounts provided by the news media and
sociological reports.

Possible topics include:

• Aging through the lens of postcolonial and/or poststructuralist theory
• Phenomenology of aging
• The global political economy of aging
• Slow death and social death
• Late style
• Cross-cultural dimensions of aging
• Aging and disability studies
• Gender and old age

View the cfp here: http://acla.org/acla2014/aging-and-the-humanities/

Please submit a paper proposal of 250 words at the following
website:http://www.acla.org/submit/

Deadline for proposals is November 15, 2013.
