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?
