This week marks the launch of a new blog from Aimi Hamraie’s Critical Design Lab at Vanderbilt University, an intentional space for transformative research practice at the intersection of critical and interrogative design, intersectional feminist design theory, and crip technoscience. Over the past year, I’ve been a long-distance collaborator with the lab, working together to nurture a community to harness critical scholarship, academic resources, and social justice oriented community. CDL is an exciting space for building collaboration around arts-based scholarship and critical disability studies that trains graduate students and opens space for new conversations.
In the coming months the lab’s website will roll out blog posts on design, disability justice, and arts-based practice, among other topics.
And, stay tuned for the first episodes of the Critical Design Lab’s podcast, contra*, set to debut in October.
