20 years of practice-led PhDs in art, design and media
Our long history of practice-led PhDs in art, design and media goes back to the earliest days of the ADMRC over 20 years ago. More than 40 students have completed PhD projects, many of whom now have well established international careers as artists, designers, craft practitioners, researchers and educators.
The first practice-led design PhD at Sheffield Hallam University was awarded to Graham Whiteley in November 2000 for his research: “An Articulated Skeletal Analogy of the Human Upper Limb” (pictured).
