Dr Stephen Hayward

Product, Ceramic and Industrial Design Programme; Contextual Studies and Dissertation Tutor, MA Industrial Design.

I trained in anthropology and art history before completing my PhD by research at the Royal College of Art (1990). Since then I have worked as a consultant on a number of exhibitions, been published widely on design history and theory and held permanent positions at Teesside University and Southampton Institute. 

Since 2003 I have been responsible for the critical context element of a number of the MA design programmes at Central Saint Martins. I am currently writing a history of current design, basing my approach on the insights and concerns of contemporary practitioners.
