A Call for Creative Scholarship

Date:
 Wednesday, March 8
Time: 2 p.m. - 4 p.m.
Cost: $75 for members; $90 for non-members.

This is an IDEC workshop that addresses what constitutes creative scholarship with regard to The Journal of Interior Design submissions. It will introduce some basic vocabulary relative to this mode of research, highlight the characteristics of creative scholarship submissions and point to some exemplars.

This workshop has one learning objective: To provide guidance on how to frame, develop and articulate creative scholarship for potential publication in the Journal of Interior Design. This singular objective serves a greater goal: to promote, advocate and advance the quality, presence and impact of creative scholarship in the discipline of interior design, interior architecture and spatial design.
