Date: 5 October 2013
Location: School of Design, CMU
Deadline for expression of interest: ASAP

On October 5, 2013 an international symposium of design researchers and practitioners will meet in the School of Design at Carnegie Mellon University, to critique the North American Design PhD. The aim of this symposium is to bring together experienced and novice academics and practitioners who are interested in the future of the North American Design PhD and its relevance to the academy, the professions and the community.

Convened by Cameron Tonkinwise and Laurene Vaughan, this symposium will bring together a breadth of expertise to discuss the topic. The methodology for the symposium is critical conversations. To facilitate these conversations a number of things have been done. Ten design researchers have been invited to participate and to provide the basis for the initial conversations. A series of provocations have been put forward by the convenors to facilitate the critique.

Due to the conversational nature of the event, participant numbers will be capped at 30. We are calling for participants in this event, information is available at
