Several concerns have emerged since the first ICDHS conference in Barcelona in 1999. Recent texts such as Global Design History (2011) have sought to distinguish between what is portrayed as an ICDHS desire to address ‘world themes’, provide an ‘overarching narrative’ and attempts ‘at comprehensively mapping the history of design in all its geographical nooks and crannies’, and global design history’s position as ‘not a topic but a methodology’. The 8th ICDHS Conference in São Paolo provides an opportunity to redefine aims and future agendas.
