Example text

As sites where humanities practitioners can engage thoughtfully with embodiment in all of its forms, makerspaces may also foster productive thinking on issues of representation, contingency, privilege, and other structural problems in academic labor. Finally, spaces for fabrication and physical computing can foreground the role of technology and design in fashioning new audiences for academic research. As digital humanities performance moves off the screen and into mobile computing, wearable technology, and augmented reality, the value of the humanities (and therefore of the institutions that host and foster humanities research) may be articulated to new publics in new ways.

Design‐in‐use has also flourished in what are often collectively called the GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums) professions. At first blush such an assertion might appear counterintuitive, notwithstanding the ready example of inter­ active museum exhibits. After all, the purpose of archives and museums is to preserve and sustain our cultural heritage, not make or design it. Moreover, GLAMs are also industries in which the hand has historically been viewed with suspicion: it is under­ stood as an instrument that breaks things as well as repairs them; deposits dirt and grime as well as removes it; accelerates an object’s physical degradation as well as reverses it.
