Session 11 (16th Nov)
Session 10 introduces a different sociological approach to understanding design – material culture studies. This particularly focuses on the work of designing: making, distributing, consuming and recycling objects. We will look at objects that are far from the world of new technologies in order to explore how far this approach might work for newer objects.
