making dialectic

Dialectic is made possible by the generous support of the AIGA and its diverse membership of over 25,000 professional designers, design educators and students from 70 chapters located around the United States.


Dialectic is also intellectually indebted to all of those individuals and groups who have contributed to the development and ongoing sustenance of the diverse array of scholarly and creative inquires that inform design education, research, criticism and professional practice, and the intersections between these.


Additionally, Dialectic is rendered as an openly accessible, scholarly journal by Michigan Publishing, the hub of scholarly publishing at the University of Michigan and a dynamic and innovative part of its University Library. Michigan Publishing advocates for the broadest possible access to scholarship around the world, and seeks to create innovative, sustainable structures for the broad dissemination and enduring preservation of scholarly dialogue.
