Open Lectures: Developing a Hybrid Design Practice

Join The Centre for Open Learning on a visual journey as they reflect on multiple perspectives of what it might mean to develop a hybrid design practice.

Closing date: 20 Jan 2022

Everyone is welcome at the University of Edinburgh's Centre for Open LearningOpen Lecture series which celebrates the diversity of their courses and passions of their colleagues.

The Open Lectures will be delivered live online and are free to join. The link you need to join the lecture will be sent in the run-up to the event.

In this lecture, COL Teaching Fellow Pushpi Bagchi will explore how the discipline of Design is generally understood to have evolved with mass manufacturing during the Industrial Revolution and explain how this narrative offers one perspective on the evolution of Design as a discipline and culture, specifically, a Eurocentric one.

By navigating her own experiences of studying, researching, and practising design across Britain, India, and Sri Lanka, alongside current discussions to decolonise Design, Pushpi will visually reflect on what it might mean to develop a hybrid design practice.
