Design Anthropology Explained!

Dori Tunstall just published an article at the Adobe Think Tank website about Design Anthropology that bears reading by anyone interested in the subjects being discussed on this blog.

Dr. Elizabeth "Dori" Tunstall is an Associate Professor of Design Anthropology at University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) in the School of Art and Design. I met her because she was looking for people from a variety of disciplines for a panel at the 2008 annual meeting of the American Anthropological Association next November.

She is a leader in field of Design Anthropology and teaches Research Methods for Art and Design and critical design and governance courses. She has worked for Sapient, Arc Worldwide, and AIGA's Design for Democracy and holds a Ph.D. in Anthropology from Stanford University.

I suggest you check it out. It is a great synopsis of the possibility provided by that approach to the human-environment interface.

Great work, Dori!
