Critically assessing the complicity of design in creating, perpetuating and reinforcing social, political and environmental problems―both today and in the past―Design Struggles proposes to brush the discipline against the grain, by problematizing Western notions of design, fostering situated, decolonial and queer-feminist modes of disciplinary self-critique. It gathers a diverse array of perspectives, ranging from social and cultural theory, design history and activism to sociology, anthropology, and critical and political studies, looking at design through the intersections of gender, culture, ethnicity and class.
