PhD by Design event @DRS2016

A message from the PhD by Design team:

“We’re happy to announce that the next PhD By Design event will take place on Monday the 27th June 2016 and is part of the Design Research Society (DRS) conference which runs on the 28th – 30th June 2016.

It is an opportunity to present work and discuss the diverse aspects of what it means to do a practice-based PhD in Design. In connection to the DRS conference, this one day event will explore what the future holds for design research and how this future is being enacted through practice-based PhD design projects right now.

Some questions we seek to explore are:

  • How do current PhDs in Design, frame and address the societal problems that face us?
  • In what ways are practice-based PhDs influencing ideas about Design and working as a designer?
  • How does current practice-based design research contribute to re-shaping our lives in more responsible, meaningful, and open ways?
