Design Anthropology is a growing field that integrates and applies anthropological insights with design interventions as a new line of critical inquiry into emergent and transient "potentialities" that arise out of the performance of design events organized to be situated within lived contexts and engaged with existing practices.
As a cross-disciplinary, collaborative, and still nascent field, the objective of this group is to raise public awareness of the field of Design Anthropology by organizing and making resources more accessible to those across a broad range of fields in order to:
1. Establish and explore how Design Anthropology fits into or supplements the existing practices and objectives of design, IT, and other fields.
2. Open up a dialogue between designers, engineers, anthropologists and potential clients leading to greater participation, adoption, and even new collaborative partnerships.
