As we enter the supposedly slack time of midsummer, do spare a thought for second-year students on the V&A/RCA History of Design MA. Not only did they hand in 30,000-word dissertations at the beginning of May and survive final examinations last week, but now they’re gearing up to be part of Show 2015 at the Royal College of Art, hold a symposium at the V&A and put the final touches to their group publication.
Before the Show officially opens to the public on Thursday 25 June, watch this space, as Team V&A/RCA History of Design has promised to give us a peek behind the scenes on the V&A Blog…
We. Cannot. Wait.
To see what else V&A/RCA History of Design students have been up to, read our other blog posts, check our pages on the RCA website and take a look at Un-Making Things, a student-run online platform for all things design history and material culture.
We’d love to meet you if you’re considering studying History of Design. The V&A/RCA History of Design Programme holds a special Open Day on Wednesday 1 July, which begins in the Humanities Show space at the RCA at 3pm, before moving to the Humanities Seminar Room.
