Session Recording

This talk will interrogate the socio-material “taken-for-grantedness” of the framing of the New Economy, focusing on the dualistic embededdness of the ‘constitutional trio’ of sustainability: economics, society, ecology, and their variations. The session will develop the concept of ‘frame backlash’ based on historical examples, and use this concept to develop a response to this taken-for-grantedness.

The session is based on ongoing work being conducted by the team at Counter-Framing Design:

Counter-Framing Design is a meta-design research project whose goal is to interrogate dominant frames within the sustainability field in order to develop new structural approaches for co-sustainment and social change.
