Graphic Design Research Beyond REF 2021 Symposium

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in conference


This symposium continues discussion and debate about 'Graphic Design Research and the Research Excellence Framework' that began at Sheffield Hallam University in October 2018. It will, again, bring together senior managers, researchers and graphic design educators to define some important terms of reference for the future of graphic design research. Building on recent scholarship, it will speculate on a future for graphic design studies and the need for more coherence, consensus, stability, and standards in graphic design research. Themes will include REF criteria, research leadership challenges, field formation, and views from graphic design educators.
