Designers are being challenged to find new ways of engaging in broader socio-technical systems and, at the same time, emerging technologies are changing the practices of design. This course will extend the knowledge and methods of design based on 10 years of scholarship and practice that demonstrate a critical, participatory and speculative engagement with futures. This course will draw on theories around the posthuman and the more-than-human in order to understand new conceptualizations of knowledge and expertise, new inventive methodologies as well as new ethical and political concepts in the design. This course draws on examples including smart cities and autonomous vehicles, robots and the future of work, networked medical devices and computational fashion. This course will integrate new inventive methodologies such as autoethnography, thing ethnography and multispecies ethnography as well as design futures methods such as stories, scenarios, and experiences.
