The PhD By Design conference is being held in the Department of Design at Goldsmiths on the 6th and 7th of November 2014.
The event is an opportunity to present work and discuss the diverse aspects of what it means to do a practice-based PhD in Design.
The aim of this event is to vocalise, discuss and work through many of the topical issues of conducting a practice-based PhD in design. It will enable early career design researchers to explore the many aspects of knowledge production within an academic institution.
The conference especially invites designers undergoing a practice-based PhD, as well as supervisors, MRes students, MPhil students within and outwith design departments.
What will happen?
The two day event will include twelve discussion sessions, presentations from leading design researchers Dr. Jennifer Gabrys (Goldsmiths, University of London), Professor Jon Rogers (University of Dundee), Professor Teal Triggs (Royal College of Art) and a public lecture by Professor Bill Gaver (Goldsmiths, University of London). The conference is an opportunity to come together to share practices, experiences and provide a forum to build a practice based design research community.
How to get involved
If you are interested in taking part, the organisers ask you to submit three questions that relate to the issues you are discovering within your practice-based research. One questions relating to doing/making/planning the second to do with output/dissemination/ use and the third we are leaving open for you to decide.
