Wiki page summarising research by Alan Blackwell with students and collaborators

Recent publications on this topic can be found at:

I believe that technology design researchers should be prepared to engage in a critical technical practice (as Philip Agre phrased it), considering a wide range of philosophical, artistic and social commentary on the design enterprise.

Since 2015, my main focus in this area has been critical attention to AI, especially in relation to the Global South, to the origins of 'intelligence' in systemic racism, to economic inequities, and to indigenous knowledge.


Other relevant collaborations include work with Marilyn Strathern, Georgina Born, Andrew Barry, Lee Wilson and conversations with Matt Ratto, Paul Dourish, Gilbert Cockton.
