Designing modern Britain

Cheryl Buckley

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


This book explores design in 20th century Britain not only as discrete ‘things’, but as ‘cultures’ ,part of a wider social, political and economic matrix.. It considers theoretical questions relating to Englishness, Britishness, modernity and tradition through detailed case studies. Examining the periphery as well as the centre by drawing upon primary research from the ‘North’ as well as the ‘South’, this regional perspective throws new light on accepted ways of ‘seeing’ showing both the contestation and re-negotiation of dominant design discourses.
