    On June 19-21, 2016 CCCD, in partnership with Warren Wilson College, convened a two-day, special-topic Craft Think Tank, bringing together a select group of experts across disciplines to assess the state of craft in academia. During the first day, the group met to consider, adopt, or reject new strategies to further the study (and thereby the practice) of craft. Contributors developed a list of potential initiatives and prioritized the following:

    -Scholarly national craft conference
    -NEH course/workshop on teaching craft studies
    -Strategically diversifying the field
    -Supporting universities to develop a craft studies minor using existing resources

    The second day focused on developing a master’s-level program in critical and historical craft studies. The group discussed and made recommendations concerning the content, format, approach,audience, and resources needed to create a relevant and successful program.
