The PhD by Design Symposium is an opportunity for doctoral students pursuing creative practice-driven research to meet and share their work.
About this Event
The PhD by Design symposia invite both PhD candidates at various stages of their course of studies or research as well as faculty advising PhD students and running PhD programs, to come together to share their work, and explore and discuss the many aspects of what it means to do a practice- based PhD.
We are pleased to announce that the next North American PhD by Design symposium will be hosted at NYU’s Brooklyn Campus, within the Dept. of Technology, Culture & Society, on Friday and Saturday the 13th and 14th of March. This two-day event aims to give PhD candidates working through creative practice in art and design, a platform to share their research and ideas, explore issues of common concern, and discuss how their work is helping shape the present and future discourses of creative practice, scholarship, and pedagogy.
As part of this year’s symposium, we will also be having two plenary speakers give talks on the first and second day of the conference: Dr. Shannon Mattern, Full Professor at The New School, and Dr. Jonathan Chapman, Full Professor and Director of the PhD program at Carnegie Mellon University.
We invite PhD candidates at any point in their studies to register for the conference or for critiques, discussion sessions or workshops, as well as faculty interested in participating in the symposium.
