An Online Trilingual Academic Journal of the Department of Ceramics and Glass Design, Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem
Tripod is a new, peer-reviewed, academic journal of the Department of Ceramics and Glass Design at Bezalel, first published in the beginning of 2018. The online journal lays the foundation for a research field in the Department’s areas of knowledge, and it is intended to provide a platform for the research activity conducted within the Department and outside it.
The journal seeks to develop the discourse in the fields of materiality and craft, and especially it intends to consolidate the discussion within those fields through a multidisciplinary dialog, which opens up channels to new, invigorating contexts between the various disciplines. The journal’s encouragement of the formation of new research paths also reflects the will to establish a wide community of scholars, creators and collaborators from diverse knowledge fields both in Israel and abroad.
In addition, this platform aims to enable a fertile dialog between theoretical study and material study, while developing an alternative discourse outside conventional categories, which gives rise to complex bodies of knowledge that inspire thinking and action.
The publication of this journal was made possible thanks to the support of the Israel Sport Lottery and thanks to the generous support of Rivka Saker and Orna Shostakovich.
