Material objects and everyday nationalism in design: the electric turkish coffee maker, its design and consumption

  • Harun Kaygan

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


This thesis provides an account of material objects which are related to the nation in their design and consumption. Addressing a major gap both in design literature and in theories of everyday nationalism, the study focuses on the processes of design and consumption in which material objects are nationalised, rather than on objects as representative of nations.
