Graphic Design Research Beyond REF2021 – Symposium at Loughborough University
Graphic Design Research Beyond REF2021
Wednesday 20 March 2019, 12.30PM—4.30PM
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.
James Corazzo is principal lecturer in Graphic Design and departmental lead for Learning, Teaching and Assessment at Sheffield Hallam University.
