CALL FOR PAPERS
Full call is at https://nordes2019.aalto.fi

Who cares?
This question is a provocation for design research. What do, or should, we care about in design and design research today? In the 2019 NORDES conference, we draw inspiration from notions of care as a lens through which to reflect upon and critique as well as potentially to refocus and redirect design and design research.

Possible themes include but are not limited to:
· The who in care? Care, relations, empathy and what comes next
· Care (in)action? Encounters, systems and institutions of care, welfare, healthcare
· How to care? Care and care-ful materials, methods and processes in design and design research
· Care, where? Design and peripheries, identities, minorities and commonalities
· Care ethos and ethics? Purposes, philosophies and responsibilities in/of design

The submission categories include:
· Full papers
· Exploratory papers (short)
· Workshops
· Doctoral Consortium
