Jessica Barness

Through writing and studio work, I focus on critical practices, participatory projects, and the design of scholarship -- and how these relate to issues of power and representation. I’m an Associate Professor in the School of Visual Communication Design at Kent State University and I also serve as Director of Research Initiatives for Design Incubation.

Current projects include explorations of public design conversations, and continuing research with Amy Papaelias on the visual design of scholarship.
