Bannon, Liam J. and Pelle Ehn. (2012). Design: Design Matters in Participatory Design. In Simonsen, J. and Robertsen T. (eds.) Routledge International Handbook of Participatory Design. New York, NY.: Routledge, pp 37-63.
EXCERPT – This chapter examines the ways in which the field of Participatory Design engages with the field of design – as both at topic, a research field and a practice. We highlight what we consider are core themes in design, especially as they relate to Participatory Design concerns. […] Our aim, from the title of the chapter, is to address the question of whether, and in what way, design actually matters for the Participatory Design community. The intent is to show how Participatory Design work is inextricably bound up in more general design debates, even if the topic of design per se is not always a front-line issue.
