Reflections on Practice and Research
Lecture Topic: Reflections on Practice and Research
Speaker: Camilla Groth
Lecture Time: May 08, 2019, 13:30-16:00
Lecture Address: A112 Lecture Hall at School of Design
Compared to other disciplines, design and art research is new. In the 1980s, with the "Design---Science---Methods" conference organized by the Design Research Society, design research began to explore the particularity of design knowledge itself. By the end of the 20th century, important journals on design research and design methodology had emerged, such as the “Design Studies”, which was published in 1979, and the “Design Issues”, which was published in 1984.
As a ceramic practitioner-researcher Camilla will introduce some practice-led research methods and explore the differences between practice and academic research. In the second part of the session she will run a short workshop for master students to kick off their thinking and formulating ideas for their master thesis.
