Stamps Professors Audrey Bennett and Ron Eglash co-edited a special issue of New Design Ideas, Vol. 5, No. 1, offering a focus on Generative Justice in Design.
The issue features writings by Audrey Bennett, Ron Eglash, Keesa V. Johnson (MDes ’21), and other scholars on the role design in creating and sustaining Generative Justice within communities.
In a 2021 interview with Michigan News, Eglash discussed the exploration of Generative Justice:
“While the idea of a circular economy is common for environmental value, there is often little attention paid to labor and social value,” said Eglash, who is a professor at Stamps and the U‑M School of Information. “The goal […] is to explore what it might mean to allow all of those elements to cycle value back to the grassroots creatives, whether those are people, plants or other agents of generativity.”
