This post marks the end of the AHRC Mapping Social Design Research and Practice project. At the end of July, we (the four researchers who set up this blog) submitted our report to the AHRC. Thank you to all of the people who participated or contributed directly and indirectly via this blog and twitter, via the speculative digital research, and through direct interactions with us.
We hope that we will be able to publish and circulate this report during the autumn to researchers and practitioners involved in the expanded and expanding field of social designing. We anticipate publishing it here on this blog and sending it directly to people we were in dialogue during the study.
This blog will now become a forum in which the researchers continue the discussion, including via a one-year AHRC-ESRC fellowship that complements and builds on this study, and our Social Design Talks. More on that in the next post.
