Every Summer we run a conference as an inclusive yet experimental space for current PGRs to present research in progress to peers. It also provides an opportunity for PGRs to be involved in different elements of the conference from developing the conference theme to peer review, curation to graphic design, and general organisation to session chairing.


2017 conference – Beyond Borders? Approaches and pathways to Arts, Design & Media research

Research in Arts, Design and Media is highly diverse, often redefining parameters and pushing boundaries. Whether dealing with more established approaches, theoretical ideas or explicitly experimenting with new methods it inevitably involves a degree of mess.

Beyond Borders? is a one-day colloquium that traverses disciplinary boundaries to explore the spaces, places and territories that exist above and below, amidst and with/out borders. It seeks to make visible and engage with the pathways, roots and routes that enable us to immerse in Arts, Design and Media research in ways that redefine the parameters of the traditional paper format itself, reflecting research, methodologies, ways of articulation and everything in between …
