[Yasmin_discussions] the international controversies around the PhD in Art and Design


As you will know PhDs in Art and Design are proliferating around the planet
with vary largely varying approaches- and there is much debate around
the rigor that is not always being used in the variety of programs

The editors for this 3 year Leonardo project are Ken Friedman and Jack Ox

They bring to our attention the first articles now available- with a call
for proposals for articles

Within the STEAM to STEM discussion a core issue is the very different
research and teaching techniques used in STEM as compared with Arts,
Design and Humanities.

Ken and Jack also in an introductory text overview the debates that are
ongoing and the serious issues involved

here is their announcement

we welcome yasminers thoughts and provocations !!
