Toward a Theory of Social Practices: A development in culturalist theorizing

"This article works out the main characteristics of 'practice theory', a type of social theory which has been sketched by such authors as Bourdieu, Giddens, Taylor, late Foucault and others. Practice theory is presented as a conceptual alternative to other forms of social and cultural theory, above all to culturalist mentalism, textualism and intersubjectivism. The article shows how practice theory and the three other cultural–theoretical vocabularies differ in their localization of the social and in their conceptualization of the body, mind, things, knowledge, discourse, structure/process and the agent."

How will the future objects and methods of graphic design and the industries it serves be reconfigured?

Thursday 07 and Friday 08 March 2013, Open, 20 Bank Plain, Norwich, Norfolk, NR2 4SF

"A two day symposium organised by Norwich University of the Arts that will explore the relationship between print and digital, and the coexistence of media in a wider sense; how they combine, and how they provide unique opportunities.

As the design industry embraces dramatic changes in technology, the Cowbird Symposium will look at graphic design as an output, a practice and a profession, exploring the relationships between print and screen–based communication. Guest speakers, all leading thinkers and practitioners themselves, will be invited to comment on the future of the distributed text–the book, magazine, newspaper and poster, as well as the challenge and opportunity afforded by new technologies, tablets, e–readers, smart phones, augmented reality, social media, digital displays, and new practices, crowdsourcing, coding, data sharing, and social reading."

Research Catalogue: international database for artistic research

"The Research Catalogue (RC) is a searchable database for archiving artistic research. RC content is not peer reviewed, nor is it highly controlled for quality, being checked only for appropriateness. As a result, the RC is highly inclusive.

The open source status of the RC is essential to its nature and serves its function as a connective and transitional layer between academic discourse and artistic practice, thereby constituting a discursive field for artistic research.

The RC creates a link between (1) elaborated documentation of the work; and (2) expositions and comments that engage with the contribution of the work as research.

Given that the RC is a site for artistic research, to add a work is to make a claim that the work can be seen as research; through expositions, comments and articles the initial claim is transformed into an argument. It is believed that the reflective space provided by the RC can become an essential part of the research process by providing a suitable structure in which to develop the relationship between documentation and exposition, whilst also retaining congruence with art itself.

Clearly, the RC is the backbone of JAR: potential JAR expositions emerge from the range of the artistic research activities taking place in it for peer–review and development within the RC space itself. Authors may nominate or JAR editors may select expositions for development as JAR contributions.

If you believe that RC software might also support your research database needs then explore the possibility of using the RC as your repository, by contacting us."

Iridescent: Icograda Journal of Design Research

"Icograda is pleased to introduce to you our newest initiative, Iridescent: Icograda Journal of Design Research. With the launch of this peer–reviewed journal, Icograda continues to support the development of communication design education in theory, practice and research.

This online platform seeks to engage the global design community as a whole in much–needed critical commentary on the state of our profession. Scholars and researchers from each region of the world are able to share their insights in any of the six United Nations languages and we hope to reveal new voices to the international design discourse through this inclusive approach.

By attracting original content across all design disciplines and setting a standard for innovative research, Icograda hopes to inspire and encourage new and unconventional approaches to design research."

(Omar Vulpinari, Editorial Director)
