The Cass is a unique environment, in which practitioners of all a range of design disciplines work side-by-side with academics to produce all kinds of knowledge and outputs.

The research environment at The Cass needs capturing, and that's the purpose of this Mapping Research workshop. At this workshop we will define the territory of research and practice at The Cass, seeking crossovers between individuals and groups; including a diagram of everyone's research and practice interests, showing the clustering of topics – in order to situate the existing and emerging research centres. We will use the map we produce, which will be a development of the first iteration produced in 2018, as a way of establishing the rationale for defining new research centres.

This one of the in the 2018-19 series of Cass Research Workshops. The series, which covers a range of topics – from practice as research, to academic writing, to book-publishing – aims to support and encourage Cass Staff and Postgraduate Research Students to develop key skills in academic research for artists, designers, writers, architects and other fields of creative practice.


About Cass Research Seminars

Cass Research Seminars are a series of public conversations which enable researchers to test and present their ideas in conversation with peers and a broader audience. The sessions seek cross-fertilisation of ideas and provoke discussion. Typically, they consist of two to three presentations of 15 minutes each followed by chaired discussion.

We had a productive year in 2017/18. Presenters found that the session deepened their work and added unexpected avenues to their thinking. All are welcome at Cass Research Seminars, both from inside and outside The Cass.
