call for papers #3 extended abstract deadline

anti-po-des design research journal issue 3 2015

structures: the conceptual, physical and ideological structures
by which design efforts, actions, processes, objects and discourses
impact on society; and vice versa.

anti-po-des design research journal #3 invites abstracts for papers that explore or engage with the concept of structure at the intersection of design and society. Whether from the perspective of design in society, or from the social within design(ing), it is the structures that mediate and are mediated by this relationship that we invite researchers and practitioners to focus on for issue 3.

This issue is dedicated to the exploration of interstitial mechanisms, forms, and linkages that afford or redirect influence and impact between design and society. We welcome work from the full spectrum of disciplines associated with the creative industries, including, but not limited to: design research; participative design; practitioners of visual culture from the past; material culture; representation (artefacts, culture, lifestyle) network theory; communication and sociology; spatial or urban design in a social context; and society and technology. Suggested areas in design and sociology are on the second section of the call for papers in pdf form.
