Victoria Hindley

Design and Visual Culture, 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 work in visual culture and design, building upon and expanding the Press’s commitment to forward-looking discourse and the Institute’s groundbreaking work in visual studies. Interested as much in transformative scholarship as in the ways that visual and material culture and design impact our daily lives, she looks for work that is rigorous, nuanced, accessible, and visually compelling. She is particularly interested in global discourses that are politically engaged, culturally informed, and which center underrepresented perspectives and understudied questions.
