To celebrate the recent publication of Speculative Research: The Lure of Possible Futures (Routledge, edited by Alex Wilkie, Martin Savransky, and Marsha Rosengarten), this event co-organised by The Unit of Play and the Centre for Invention and Social Process will bring many of the authors in the collection as well as other international scholars together for a day-long, experimental summer school. Throughout the day we will collectively explore the challenges and potentialities of speculative thought and practice through a series of hands-on experimental workshops, situated reflections, and roundtable discussions.
Research Students and ECRs from all disciplines are especially encouraged to attend. The event is free and everyone is welcome. Registration is required (due to limited capacity). Please register here.
The book, About Learning and Design, has just been published by Bolzano University Press. The book is an edited collection of contributions and interviews with design practitioners and academics, including an interview with me conducted by Alvise Mattozzi. In the interview we discuss the value of teaching Science and Technology Studies to design students.
