Representing an encounter between two distinct disciplines, the field of design anthropology is in the process of being established. The Research Network for Design Anthropology is a collaboration between The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Aarhus University, and the University of Southern Denmark, funded for two years by the Danish Research Council. We invite researchers from both Denmark and abroad to identify the potentials and challenges of this emerging field. The network explores important emerging modes of knowledge production within design anthropology, yet with constructive implications for both disciplines.
To this end the network has convened three open seminars:
1) Ethnographies of the Possible
2) Interventionist Speculation
3) Collaborative Formation of Issues
The closing conference brings together contributions from the seminars and from a broad international audience on August 13-14, 2015 in Copenhagen.The conference is sold out, and it's no longer possible to register.
