“This unique collection serves as an invitation to anyone interested in the intersection between design and social sciences to move beyond jargon and hype and equip themselves with a critical approach to conceptualising futures. Drawing on canonical anthropology as well as more experimental design anthropology, it is relevant for those who are interested in design thinking, service, social, sustainable, speculative, contestable and propositional practices… in short, in design and research for, with and by people.”
Daniel Charny, Kingston University / Director, From Now On, UK

“This book should be of interest to those engaged in theorizing the entangled temporalities of past, present, and future, and to those concerned with the practical, political, and economic conditions in which professional design assumes its place in practices of future making. Most importantly, the futures imagined here are those in which the figure of design itself is subject to radical anthropological transformation.”
Lucy Suchman, Lancaster University, UK
