Beyond Design: Cross-Disciplinary Encounters,

8th June 2017, London, UK

The London Doctoral Design Centre (LDoc) is delighted to invite you to this research student-led conference and workshop.


Together we will explore how design is expanding its role through its encounters with other disciplines. We aim to inspire cross-disciplinary collisions among participants from different backgrounds to engage in discussion and debate. We will examine the value of these cross-disciplinary modes of thinking and the knowledge this can bring to design and other disciplinary fields. We will critically explore these encounters via epistemology, research methods and through synergy and conflicts surrounding the collaborative process.


This event will be of particular interest to postgraduate design students and academics, but is open to all.
