Colleagues in the Lincoln School of Design carry out research in a rich variety of ways and into a broad range of subjects. Staff carry out both pedagogic research, which informs how we teach and enables students to learn, and more academic research concerning a wide range of topics; from flood protection to council estate design, from product obsolescence to exhibition design. Researchers write books and academic articles, they create performances, they make different kinds of ‘stuff’ and they work with non-academic partners of various kinds.
In addition to research, colleagues in the Lincoln School of Design engage in a wide range of activities including various types of teaching, diverse professional practice, wide-ranging outreach, and business enterprise projects. Our professional practice activities, for example, are diverse and include book art, surf culture, printmaking and visual anthropology. Our outreach activities and business projects are also characterised by diversity, depth and breadth.
We have a growing population of around 20 full-time and part-time UK and international research students. They are supervised by staff who are internationally recognised as experts in their field and have access to world class facilities to complete their studies.
