Open call for submissions: special issue on Co-Design and the Public Realm

Posted by Jessica on Wednesday June 22nd 2016 at 15:23

TRADERS is editing a special journal issue that will be published in CoDesign: International Journal of CoCreation in Design and the Arts. We invite you to contribute to this call by submitting a paper that addresses one of these central questions:

– What are the consequences, tensions and challenges of co-design engaging with the public realm when that realm is increasingly entangled with private forces?
– What concepts, frameworks, tools, methods are used and what values are pursued to answer these challenges?
– In an era of growing social, ecological and economic injustice, is the answer found in the mobilisation of all possible forces, including design, in order to challenge the marketisation of the political?
– Or, on the contrary, is the answer to pull back and rethink co-design in this era of blurred boundaries?
– Additionally, are divisions between public and private productive; or are there other alternatives?

Deadline for the submission of full papers: 30th of September 2016. More info about the special issue and submissions can be found here.
