Forming the second instalment of Volume magazine's Learning Network project, this issue is dedicated to mapping the contemporary fields of knowledge production in architecture, art and the social sciences and the research practices pushing them forward. Volume wanted to learn from those who have been instrumental in shifting disciplinary boundaries and shaping today’s landscape of creative activity.
The extent to which economic value is placed on knowledge today forces us to reconsider its social role and our relation to it. Research, the general category for processes of knowledge production, has become omnipresent in both education and practice. Today it’s not so important what you know but rather how you think. Progress, in this sense, is predicated by critical reflection on ways of knowing and disciplinary traditions of thought.
