Alfredo defended his doctoral thesis dissertation about Designs of the South, the Souths (in plural), others and with other names, abbreviated in English as Dessobons this November 4 and obtained the highest recognition by his juries.

Lesley-Ann Noel

North Carolina State University

https://design.ncsu.edu/people/lmnoel/

Lesley-Ann Noel is an Assistant Professor in the Dept. of Design Studies at North Carolina State University. Her current work is situated at the intersection of equity, co-creation and futures thinking. Her research interests are emancipatory research centred around the perspectives of those who would traditionally be excluded from research, community-led research, design-based learning and design thinking. She practices primarily in the area of social innovation, education and public health. She promotes greater critical awareness among designers and design students by introducing critical theory concepts and vocabulary into the design studio e.g. through The Designer’s Critical Alphabet.

 

She is co-Chair of the Pluriversal Design Special Interest Group of the Design Research Society. Before joining North Carolina State University, she was the Associate Director of Design Thinking for Social Impact at Tulane University. She was also a lecturer at Stanford University and the University of the West Indies.

Among the many projects he developed to explore this very possibility, Corais Platform stands out as the best example so far. Created in 2011, it hosts more than 700 collaborative projects run by social movements, indigenous communities, art collectives, and popular educators associated with the Brazilian digital culture movement. In 2020, Frederick co-founded the Design & Oppression network in Brazil and the Laboratory of Design against Oppression in UTFPR.

Natalie Robertson

Natalie Robertson (Ngāti Porou, Clann Dhònnchaidh) is a photographic and moving image artist and Senior Lecturer at AUT University, Tāmaki Makaurau (Auckland). Much of Natalie’s research is based in Te Tai Rāwhiti, her East Coast Ngāti Porou homelands. Centring Waiapu—the ancestral river of Ngāti Porou—world-famous for its erosion, Natalie draws on historic archives and tribal oral customs to explore how her lens-based practice can contribute to tribal aspirations for environmental reinvigoration.

 

Robertson recently completed her doctoral thesis Tātara e maru ana: Renewing ancestral connections with the sacred rain cape of Waiapu Kōkā Hūhua through the University of Auckland.
