This is the website of a 2007 conference held at the University of Lincoln in the UK, to consider... "the influence of the Humanities on the processes of design". The organisers of 'The Role of the Humanities in Design Creativity' have since placed all of the conference papers online in full-text form. Over 40 papers are freely available, in PDF format. The website offers papers on historical topics such as: 'Alfred Lord Tennyson and Visual Culture'; 'Nature Choreographed: the 18th century garden'; and on contemporary topics such as 'People & Place: Humanities-based Pedagogy in Architecture and Planning'; and 'The Word Made Flesh: In the Name of the Surveyor, the Nomad, & the Lunatic', among others. The website has details of the Editorial Board for the conference. This will be an especially useful archive of papers for those concerned with... "how the traditional inter-relationship between word and image ... has in more recent years become obscured by the growing dominance of image as the only legitimate means of developing and communicating design ideas".
