Five papers have just been published with our editorial from the Power and Politics in Design for Transition track at Loughborough University’s Research Perspectives In the Era of Transformations conference 19-21 June 2019.
The politics of design transitions remains marginal in design research. With our call, we hoped to receive contributions that problematised design’s current roles and conceptualised new roles for design in the context of sustainability transitions to attend to issues related to how power is and should be dealt with.
