The Yin and Yang of Design Anthropology with Dr. Elizabeth Dori Tunstall

In this Conversations episode of This Anthro Life, Adam Gamwell and guest host/TAL correspondent Matt Artz  explore the world of Design Anthropology with the help of Dr. Elizabeth  “Dori” Tunstall. Design Anthropology is a subject near and dear to our  hosts, who have been excited to devote an entire episode to the subject.  But, what is Design Anthropology? If you’re scratching your head, no  worries. Adam, Matt, and Dr. Tunstall have it covered and describe the  five iterations of design anthropology using examples of their use in  the field. Over the course of the episode Adam, Matt, and Dr. Tunstall  briefly cover issues of ethics within design anthropology as well as a  touching upon how to find jobs in design.   

Adam, Matt, and Dr. Tunstall also make time to get into the topics of whether:

  • the IRS is really as bad as popular culture makes them out to be.
  • How can we avoid cultural misappropriation?
  • And finally, how do value systems get expressed in design?
