The Bartlett Doctoral Review 2018 cover

What is the Bartlett Review?

The Review features highlights from articles, blog pieces and papers, giving a snapshot of doctoral research (and more) from some of the roughly 450 PhD students currently enrolled at The Bartlett.

Why was it created?

The Bartlett has an amazing range of research covering the arts, humanities, science and technology – as well as the built environment – which we wanted to share. Beyond this, we wanted to celebrate a raft of wider activities and achievements our students have been involved in over the course of the year.

The Review captures a glimpse of all this – from storytelling narratives at the Royal Academy to 3D-laser-scanning and robots as 'orange collar' workers.

Who’s behind it?

The Review was edited by Stephen Marshall (Faculty Graduate Tutor, Research), Ariana Markowitz (Development Planning Unit) and Fernanda Garcia Alba Garciadiego (Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering). Much of the content has come from items featured over the course of the year on The Bartlett Doctoral Hub and the @TheBartlettPhD Twitter account
