Dr. Sarah Baker is joining CDH this May as a Visiting Research Fellow. Sarah is a Senior Lecturer and Research Fellow at the Media Design School, Auckland. NZ. Her research expertise is focused on design methodologies including UX design, critical design and ethics, systems thinking and speculative futures. She has a particular interest in design and inequality, specifically gendered aspects of design. 

Join us for her lecture titled: Wild Things/Wild Methods: the potential of wildness for designing beyond binaries

Monday 15th May, 12:00 – 13:00, Elm House 104

This research asks whether the wild has the potential to move design practice away from ways of knowing, being and doing informed by ‘either/or’ logic? What would design that embraces the wild look like, and is design centred on a loss of control, bewilderment and unworlding even possible? It considers whether we as designers and design researchers can abandon our long-standing norms and practices by venturing into the wild.
