Lund Presents at Design History Society International Conference

Curt Lund, assistant professor of digital media arts, presented new research at "Design and Displacement," the Design History Society's 2018 annual conference, hosted by Parsons School of Design in New York City. Lund's paper, "U.S. Picks Russian to teach French Commercial Art: Tracing Cross-Cultural Influences in the Work of Alexey Brodovitch," explored the conference's theme through a case study of trans-cultural exchange and the influence of European Modernism on American graphic design and advertising of the 1920s and '30s.
