The fields and practices of art and design research represent a distinct array of alternative and critical approaches to the production of knowledge.  Such contextualist, experimental, and practice–based traditions have profound implications for research in other fields and for our understanding of the cultural and aesthetic basis of research activity.  From this perspective:  What are the forms and methods of research that currently prevail within art and design contexts?  How do they build on, or distinguish themselves from, other academic models and structures? What are the (real and practical) grounds for reconvening the conversations between fields of research practice that were separated by the academic movements of the 20th century?
