Victoria Hindley

Acquisitions Editor

Victoria joined the MIT Press in 2016 after working in publishing and the arts for two decades in both the USA and Europe. She acquires books on design and visual culture. Interested as much in transformative scholarship as in the ways that design and culture impact our daily lives, she looks for work that is rigorous but accessible, nuanced, and visually compelling. She is particularly interested in global discourses that are politically-engaged and culturally informed, and which illuminate new lines of critical inquiry.
