50% seminar with doctoral design student Ariana Amacker
The title of Ariana Amackers 50% seminar is: Design inquiry and pragmatist aesthetics: How does going feel?
Ariana Amacker’s ongoing doctoral studies builds on the growing interest in design and “design thinking” in management contexts, which has continued to problematize the notion of design knowledge, specifically aesthetic knowledge, for the design research community. Her thesis investigates, through design, whether a Classical Pragmatist non-dualistic view of experience and aesthetics has anything to offer design practice and research.
Opponent: Lena Hopsch, PhD Architecture/Chalmers.
