Nordcode 2016 seminar

November 22-24
University of Southern Denmark, Kolding, Denmark.

The theme of the 15th Nordcode seminar is mediation and design. While the designed object may communicate meaning and can be understood as mediating in multimodal ways in itself, design is also communicated, represented, set in discourse or mediated in various ways. Likewise most designs appear as mediations before their realisation as objects and some designs never go beyond their state as mediated ideas. Mediation seem to be crucial to design both ante and post factum in numerous respects.

The venue of the seminar is the newly built “design” campus of University of Southern Denmark, and the museum Trapholt, both located in the town of Kolding.
Keynote speakers:
Dr. Grace Lees-Maffei, School of Creative Arts at the University of Hertfordshire
Prof. André Jansson, Media and Communication Studies at the Karlstad University
Prof. Anders V. Munch, Institute for Design and Communication at the University of Southern Denmark

The seminar gathers speakers from the Nordic countries for a three day programme.
