Te Maru Pūmanawa | College of Creative Practice & Enterprise at Otago Polytechnic and Ōtepoti He Puna Auaha | Dunedin City of Literature, and the University Book Shop invite you to join us for the launch of The Politics of Design: Privilege and Prejudice in Aotearoa New Zealand, Australia and South Africa (Otago Polytechnic Ltd Press, 2021) edited by Federico Freschi, Jane Venis and Farieda Nazier.

This edited volume offers a unique comparative study of the ways in which white privilege has been embedded in design in these settler-colonial societies. Taking a deliberately broad view of the notion of ‘design’, the book includes multiple indigenous voices amongst its authors, drawn from leading academic institutions in Aotearoa New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, the UK and the USA. 

The editors will be joined by some of the authors to introduce the book, and copies will be on sale. 
Date: Wednesday, 15 June 2022
Time: 5.00 pm
Venue: The Hub, Otago Polytechnic, Forth Street
RSVP: federicof@op.ac.nz by Monday, 13 June
