Submission Guidelines

Although Unmaking Things is edited and run by students on the V&A/ RCA History of Design MA, we are delighted to include submissions from all. In order to encourage a more interactive and diverse range of topics, we welcome articles from anyone with an interest in or curiosity about design, its histories and material culture.

We ask that all pieces should be 750-1500 words maximum, should be scholarly in approach and should adhere to our submission guidelines.
