Main Article Content
Celia Lury is the founder of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies at the University of Warwick, of which she is a professor and researcher. Out of her interest in the way 'live' methods represent social worlds, she works on interdisciplinary methodologies, feminist and cultural theory, sociology of culture, consumer culture, and algorithms. Celia Lury is co-editor of Routledge Handbook of Interdisciplinary Research Methods (Routledge, 2018), Inventive Methods, (Routledge, 2012), and Measure and Value (Blackwell, 2012), among other volumes. In the following interview, Lury explains how she uses discussion and critical reflection on methods as a means to build interdisciplinarity. She emphasizes that live methods require being activated within a broader assemblage or ecology, and that an ethical orientation is needed when approaching and using methods. For Lury, methods cannot simply be conceived as instruments or tools. Instead, they should be perceived as practices. In this sense, one of the contributions that design makes to the debate on methodology is the specific relationship that designers have with practices and processes. In fact, emphasis on making allows designers to think about the material and semiotic properties of methods in a very enabling way.
