The new LinkedIn group Designgeschiedenis Nederland connects design historians and authors and enables them to exchange information, announce activities, and discuss design history. Premsela will regularly post news of its Heritage & History activities to the group. Interested parties are welcome to join.
The group is affiliated with the Dutch-language website Designhistory.nl, which features articles, reviews and details of affiliated researchers and authors. Online since 2009, the site is run by Stichting Designgeschiedenis Nederland, a foundation that promotes research and publication in the field and works to widen interest in design.
Premsela is helping to build the site and professional network. We wish to promote the publication of design research and help historians to communicate with each other. It is important for Dutch design scholars that their research reaches a wider audience and receives more international attention.
