Society, Design and Technology (SDT) Seminar


The Society, Design and Technology (SDT) Seminar is a space for interdisciplinary reflection among academics from various fields that is meant to promote discussion of the cultural, political and ethical implications of designs, imaginaries and uses of digital technologies in contemporary societies.

The seminar is made possible with the support of:

-Fondecyt Regular Grant 1180062. Researcher: Martín Tironi, Guest Editor Diseña 11 (Design and Politics) and Diseña Editorial Board member.


-Escuela de Diseño UC



This edition aims to contribute to the methodological debate through the publication of works in which the method becomes relevant. Works that explore methods for composing research problems, for gathering information, for co-creation, for developing participatory processes, for transferring research findings to the industry, for getting to know the user, for speculation, for eval­uation and analysis, among others, are welcome.

The call is twofold: on the one hand, we invite design researchers to present contributions that account for the use of new methodological repertoires or for the creative use of traditional methods. On the other hand, we call researchers from other disciplines (especially anthropologists, sociologists, and historians) interested in the various design methods to present contributions that account for the results of their explorations.

If interested, please submit your manuscript in by September 30, 2018.
