PhD By Design


Participants at PhD by Design 2015

PhD by Design is a series of events that explore the messiness of practice-based research.

The aim of these events is to vocalise, discuss and work through many of the topical issues of conducting a practice-based PhD in Design. They enable early career design researchers to explore a variety of aspects of knowledge production within an academic institution.

A secondary aim of the events is to share questions that emerge through doing practice-based research. Some of the questions we aim to tackle are:

  • What counts as practice-based research?
  • What are the politics of designing and conducting practice-based research?
  • Where are the boundaries of theory & practice?
  • How can we make practice-based research accountable?

More information can be found on the PhD by Design website and Twitter.
