Research Directions

Since autumn 2012, the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design (Konstfack) established four research directions.

These directions were formed in conjunction with the drafting of Konstfack's research strategy, and in collaboration with parties at the school who are active and interested in research. A survey of ongoing activities, future needs, the relevance of the directions to the undergraduate programme and the requirement that they be interdisciplinary/inter-departmental, formed the basis for both the discussions and the decision.

The research directions are:
Design Driven Knowledge Production
Material Cultures
Narrative Processes
Visual Cultures and Learning
