We’re excited to welcome Jan Chipchase to campus for what will certainly be a fascinating lecture on Monday, Nov. 16 at 1 pm at Hillside Campus’ Ahmanson Auditorium.
Chipchase is a global traveler and corporate anthropologist working for Nokia as principal engineer of the Nokia Research Center in Tokyo. Drawing on issues related to the design research he conducts—in part on behalf of his employer—he writes about the collision of people, society and technology for his website, Future Perfect.
Chipchase will discuss the risks and rewards of conducting field research in less predictable environments, drawing on research from Afghanistan, Brazil, China, Ghana, Indonesia, Iran, India, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nicaragua and Uganda. The lecture is presented by Designmatters, Art Center’s social impact educational department.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information and to RSVP, contact Designmatters at firstname.lastname@example.org.
