submitting a paper: Design & the Social

Let’s publish something on this!
The 3 seminars held in the spring 2011 pointed to the potential in combining the analytical concept of ‘infrastructuring’ with concrete tactics of managing living labs (Peter Danholt & Erling Björgvinsson), the ontological assumption of ‘performativity’ with theatrical stagings of new physical prototypes and practices (Brendon Clark and Henry Larsen), and finally complex ethnographic descriptions with designerly speculations as to how things might be different (Brit Winthereik and Alex Wilkie).

We will aim for publishing papers as a special issue of the peer-reviewed online journal “STS Encounters“. All three of our seminar themes outlined above could be relevant frames for a contribution to STS Encounters. The size limit of contributions is 8000 words. For more details see the ‘guidance for submission’ on the page linked above.

Status (working title, abstract, or draft version) and expected contributions:
Course faculty (Joachim and keynotes), working title: Introduction: Between STS and Design.
Mads Breddam, draft version: Thinking Fiction in Social Science.
