Learning and Celebrating: The Glamour of Design Lecture Series
Popov, Lubomir
Journal of Academic Administration in Higher Education, v9 n2 p19-26 Fall 2013
The purpose of this paper is to highlight the celebratory aspect of the Design Lecture Series, a tradition in architecture schools and interior design programs, its meaning for all constituent parties, and its contributions to creating professional identity and community. The Design Lecture Series is a public event popular in design programs, ranging from graphic and industrial design to interior and architectural design. At these events, prominent professionals and academics present their newest work and discuss ideas in the making. The research design is a case study, conceived from a Symbolic Interactionist perspective in accordance with the principles of Grounded Theory methodology. The project unveils the complex and multilayered universe of the Design Lecture Series and depicts how all of its components fuse in a flamboyant celebration of professionalism, academic achievement, and community outreach.
