Research Methods for Cultural Studies: Analysing Visual Experience

"Although some disciplines and fields have been more successful in ignoring it, cultural studies has always implied the analysis of the visual. Indeed, since cultural studies is concerned with 'how culture is produced, enacted and consumed' (Lister and Wells 2000: 61), it is inevitable that scholars working in this area would engage with the visual. As Martin Lister and Liz Wells argue, 'it is seldom, if ever, possible to separate the cultures of everyday life from practices of representation, visual or otherwise' (2000: 61). Most scholars working in the field of visual studies agree that any analysis of culture would benefit from attention to the visual experience, knowledge and practice that in part constitutes what culture is (Pink 2007)."

Autumn 2012: Design and Social Innovation

"There is a growing interest in the role that design can play in catalysing, harnessing, spreading and scaling social innovation around the world. This is expressed in two key ways:

> by a growing number of professional designers and design disciplines applying their skills to addressing social issues; and

> by the adoption of design tools, techniques and methods by a growing number of other disciplines focused on developing social innovation.

Perhaps the most recognisable facet of this interest has been the rise of 'design thinking' not only in business, but increasingly in public service and policy fields. Fuelled by design agencies such as IDEO in the US, non–profit bodies such as the Design Council in the UK, and education institutions such as Stanford's '', design thinking has begun to be recognised as a key ingredient underpinning innovation (whether that be social innovation or not). Indeed, according to Sir George Cox, past chairman of the Design Council, design is what bridges creativity (the generation of new ideas) and innovation (the successful implementation of new ideas). In other words, design could be described as:

'the human power to conceive, plan, and realize products that serve human beings in the accomplishment of any individual or collective purpose' (Richard Buchanan, 2001)."
