Design Anthropological Futures

£14.99

Product description

A major contribution to the field, this ground-breaking book explores design anthropology's focus on futures and future-making. Examining what design anthropology is and what it is becoming, the authors push the frontiers of the discipline and reveal both the challenges for and the potential of this rapidly growing transdisciplinary field. Divided into four sections - Ethnographies of the Possible, Interventionist Speculation, Collaborative Formation of Issues, and Engaging Things - the book develops readers' understanding of the central theoretical and methodological aspects of future knowledge production in design anthropology.

Condition: Covers somewhat shelfworn and corner bumped, marks to foreedge, general signs of use but pages clean and clear and binding tight.
