Call for Papers: 2019 Special edition of JTATM is Empathy in Design

JTATM is calling for abstracts for our special issue on Empathy in Design. Abstracts are due February 15, 2019, for consideration. The Design Thinking model teaches that empathy is the starting point in design, but there are many ways of establishing empathy, and many ways in which empathy influences subsequent steps in designing a product.

We invite design scholars to submit papers around the theme of Empathy in the design process.

For this special, design-themed edition of JTATM we will accept:
•Papers addressing a research question/questions relating to empathy in design.
•Papers that address a research question/questions in parallel with or through creation of designed objects.
•Designed objects documented through writing and photography (these will become part of a digital gallery on the JTATM website).
