Welcome to the PhD-Design Discussion List

This discussion list has been established for the exchange of views and information about research training leading to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Design and cognate subjects.

The term 'design' is identified here principally with the following fields: industrial, interior, theatre, automotive, furniture, graphic, multimedia, jewellery, fashion, and textile design, together with design management, crafts, ceramics and glass.

The genesis for this discussion was an international conference titled "Doctoral Education in Design" held at the Ohio State University, USA, in October 1998. Delegates felt that the business of the conference might best be continued by email discussion in the intervals between future conferences.
