Making space to celebrate the pluriverse
Umeå University, Faculty of Science and Technology, Umeå Institute of Design.
2023 (English)Conference paper, Oral presentation only (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Current co-design practices are problematic when applied in non-western contexts as they need to become fairer, more respectful and appropriate to the flourishing of the Global South. In response, my work aims to increase co-design abilities to create pluriversal futures. Before design can be used for emancipation, it must first be emancipated itself. From this stance an inquiry arises: how could we make space to unlearn hegemonic co-design practices? In this short paper I introduce the conceptual basis of my research which integrates key elements of Critical Latin American studies and the Degrowth movement: emancipation, conviviality, care, pluriverse, and sentipensar. With a practice-based approach, I outline the already implemented course of research as well as my plans to further explore this conceptual framework through Situated Practical Explorations with Global South communities in Mexico. I conclude with the expected outcomes of my research having a socio-cultural shift as a meta objective.
