Promotional Information

How can design processes contribute to questions of social engagement? What happens when we shift our attention from creating artifacts to convening and developing publics? Chris Le Dantec addresses these questions not in the abstract but through detailed and compelling cases and hard-won experience. The result is engaged scholarship of the best kind. -- Paul Dourish, Chancellor's Professor, University of California, Irvine; author of Divining a Digital Future: Mess and Mythology in Ubiquitous Computing This book is insightful and clear on the emerging field of social design. Christopher Le Dantec persuasively grounds his theoretical work in the commitments of participatory design, ethnography, and design. As a result, he effectively argues for engaging public and social concerns as matters of design and in the process establishes concise language for designers to tackle our social challenges. -- Ron Wakkary, Professor, Interactive Arts & Technology, Simon Fraser University; Professor, Industrial Design, Eindhoven University of Technology Designing Publics is a landmark contribution to the emerging field of digital civics. The book provides not only a critical exploration of the concepts of publics and civics, but also an extended and detailed description of a design project which makes concrete the rich conceptual landscape that the book maps out. This book will be essential reading for students, teachers, and researchers in the developing field of digital civics. -- Peter Wright, Professor of Social Computing, Newcastle University
