A major contribution to the field, this ground-breaking book explores design anthropology's focus on futures and future-making. Examining what design anthropology is and what it is becoming, the authors push the frontiers of the discipline and reveal both the challenges for and the potential of this rapidly growing transdisciplinary field. Divided into four sections – Ethnographies of the Possible, Interventionist Speculation, Collaborative Formation of Issues, and Engaging Things – the book develops readers' understanding of the central theoretical and methodological aspects of future knowledge production in design anthropology. Bringing together renowned scholars such as George Marcus and Alison Clarke with young experimental design anthropologists from countries such as Denmark, Sweden, Austria, Brazil, the UK, and the United States, the sixteen chapters offer an unparalleled breadth of theoretical reflections and rich empirical case studies. Written by those at the forefront of the field, Design Anthropological Futures is destined to become a defining text for this growing discipline. A unique resource for students, scholars, and practitioners in design anthropology, design, architecture, material culture studies, and related fields.

Ethics in business is a major topic both in the social sciences and in business itself. Anthropologists, long attendant to the intersection of ethics and practice, are particularly well suited to offer vital insights on the subject. This timely collection considers a range of ethical issues in business through the examination of anthropologically informed theory and case examples. The meaning of ethical values, practices, and education are explored, as well as practical ways of implementing them, while the specific ethical challenges of industries such as advertising, market research, and design are considered. Contributions from anthropologists in business and academia promise a broad range of perspectives and add to the growing discussion on the ways anthropologists study, work, teach, and engage in a variety of industry settings. Engagingly written, Ethics in the Anthropology of Business will be of interest to a wide variety of audiences, including practicing anthropologists, current and future business leaders, and scholars and students from a range of social sciences.

Ax, corset, and sewing machine - what do everyday objects reveal about a community? What significance do they have in history? In American cultural studies particularly, nothing is too small, no object too primitive to become the subject of historical research. In a methodologically and theoretically innovative way, the contributions to this volume show how national identity, but also gender and ethnicity, are significantly influenced by material culture. Everyday objects thus gain a key role in cultural history. Against this background, this volume makes key texts from the American cultural debate accessible to the German-speaking readership. Chronologically organized, it pursues the Thing History of the 19th and 20th Centuries.

Design and Anthropology challenges conventional thinking regarding the nature of design and creativity, in a way that acknowledges the improvisatory skills and perceptual acuity of people. Combining theoretical investigations and documentation of practice based experiments, it addresses methodological questions concerning the re-conceptualisation of the relation between design and use from both theoretical and practice-based positions. Concerned with what it means to draw 'users' into processes of designing and producing this book emphasises the creativity of design and the emergence of objects in social situations and collaborative endeavours. Organised around the themes of perception and the user-producer, skilled practices of designing and using, and the relation between people and things, the book contains the latest work of researchers from academia and industry, to enhance our understanding of ethnographic practice and develop a research agenda for the emergent field of design anthropology. Drawing together work from anthropologists, philosophers, designers, engineers, scholars of innovation and theatre practitioners, Design and Anthropology will appeal to anthropologists and to those working in the fields of design and innovation, and the philosophy of technology and engineering.

Früher entwarfen Designer Gegenstände. Heute wird praktisch alles designt: das Klima, Prozesse, Flüchtlingslager. Wenn jedoch alles designt wird, ist es höchste Zeit, Design nicht länger allein nach ästhetischen Gesichtspunkten zu bewerten. Wir brauchen, so Friedrich von Borries, eine politische Designtheorie. Der Mensch ist gezwungen, die Bedingungen, unter denen er lebt, zu gestalten. Geschieht dies so, dass Handlungsoptionen reduziert werden, haben wir es mit Unterwerfung zu tun. In seinem Manifest plädiert von Borries für ein entwerfendes Design (des Überlebens, der Gesellschaft, des Selbst), das sich der totalitären Logik der Versicherheitlichung entzieht und gegen die Ideologie der Alternativlosigkeit neue Formen des Zusammenlebens imaginiert.
