Announcing SDRJ Special Issue (11.2): Autonomía | Design strategies for enabling design process

Dear colleagues,

we are pleased to announce the latest issues of Strategic Design Research
Journal (SDRJ): “Autonomía | Design strategies for enabling design

The organization of this special issue aimed at investigating the
relationship between design and autonomía, questioning mainstream design
and exploring designing across and above disciplinary frontiers.

The issue itself is the result of an intense, enriching, collaborative and
(at least partially) experimental approach to academic writing. It has been
possible through the contribution of a plurality of researchers that have
joined us, the editors, throughout the whole process.

The special issue contains 7 research articles and 7 invited pieces.

You can find below the table of contents for SDRJ 11.2 and the direct link.

Finally, we have a virtual FB launch event next week: join us if you are

Best regards,

Chiara, Andrea and Alfredo
