Stricto Sensu Graduate Program in Design

The Anhembi Morumbi University, which is now part of the Laureate International Network of Universities, is the first institution in the capital of São Paulo to offer the Postgraduate Program Stricto Sensu Doctorate and Master in Design, recommended by CAPES / MEC.

The Anhembi Morumbi Stricto Sensu Postgraduate Program in Design was developed based on interdisciplinarity and the exercise of research at various levels of deepening, associated with reflection and practice in the field of design.

About the Program


DATJournal is a four-monthly publication of the Stricto-Sensu Graduate Program in Design, from Anhembi Morumbi University. The acronym DAT refers to Design, Art and Technology – the program’s concentration line, and this publication marks the continuity of the work carried out since 2005 in the collection format of the DAMT and DAT editions, available at https://datjournal.anhembi.br / dat .

We are experiencing a unique moment, marked by a rich theoretical-practical production, in the field of Design, Art and Technology, which needs to be brought together and disseminated. With this, DATJournal proposes to select reflections and discussions in this interface, from a transdisciplinary perspective that shelters the diversity of scopes, objects of study and approaches in this field of investigation.

The DATJournal is permanently open for submissions.

The second dossier has guest editors Daniela Garrossini and Tiago Pontes e Silva and presents design research in the Brazilian Midwest, with a focus on the Graduate Program in Design at the University of Brasília. This second dossier marks the beginning of the DATJournal special series on Graduate Programs in Design in Brazil, which will be invited to present their trajectories, characteristics and strength lines.

v. 4 n. 2 (2019): Design and Activism

The criticism of modernist historical projects with a European / North American matrix led, since the 1960s, to a review of their assumptions and results from countercultural perspectives and as a reconfiguration of the political force field from the new configurations of Western capitalism. With the processes of globalization and geopolitical readjustments, the flow of permanent displacements since the end of the Cold War, new possibilities for reading and operating e and art and
design have emerged favoring criticism and transformation of established reality.

Within this scope, researchers, designers, artists, activists were invited who, inside and outside the university, produce and reflect in the wide territory of art, design and activism. His reports offer a dense and also panoramic drawing of possibilities in approaching the proposed theme and, above all, allow the reader to get closer to what the dossier’s publishers want: to point to transformative forms and committed to the social reality that art and design can take. The proposals of authors and research that address or dialogue with American, Latin American and Brazilian practices were privileged, as it is clear, thanks to the contributions received, the incorporation of the educational debate in confluence with the thematic fields indicated in the dossier.
