PhD Proposal Defense: “Graphing Theory: New Mathematics, Design, and the Participatory Turn”

How can we retell the history and rethink the present of participatory design theory by looking at the technical device that its first manifestations rely on? This is the question that I ask in my MIT dissertation (Major: Design and Computation, Minor:
