The focus is on pertinent questions in our post-digital age, including topics such as how craft research can be communicated through multimodal means; the role of craft in today’s society; questioning the potential of craft practitioner-researchers in interdisciplinary research; and evaluating new pedagogic methods. The natural interests of our researchers in CFPR overlap with many of these research themes in addressing the junction between craft and technology with specific reference to print and the multiple.

All three are excited to be selected, and look forward to connecting with an international audience in a vibrant and growing field.
