Design Anthropology

In the spirit of the Open Anthropology Cooperative, this group is meant to be accessible to those with undergrad, masters, PhD's and other degrees across a broad range of fields, as well as lay people just interested in learning more about the topic. That is, it is open and meant to be found without prior knowledge of its institutions, field-specific lingo in either design or anthropology, or even knowledge or access to specific online technology platforms. It is simply a "Design Anthropology"…See More

"Hi, Elaine You perhaps are familiar with Harry Enfield's Brit spoofs.  Always good for a laugh. This one addresses housing, in fact: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQWPR9TM0Gk"

Larry Stout commented on John McCreery's blog post Collective? Individual? Both? How should we think about thinking?
"As always, John, your remarks are seminal and evocative.  Case in point: "different groups find particular models useful". This brings to mind organic evolution and ecological niches.  Although some biologists speak of…"
