The aim of the 2017 PhD by Design Conference is to enable the question of who ‘I’ am to be evoked in research, to be brought into focus, exposed and examined, critiqued and debated. The conference seeks to engage with narratives of ‘self’; how the notion of self as a researcher has been assumed and embodied in research.

The goal is to create an interdisciplinary discussion platform about subjectivity in research by design. The conference will break the conceived notion of design and redefine it as the process of struggles with the self: confession, realisation, disguise and evolution.
