This talk thinks with the affective labor of design pedagogy and in particular the way forms of radical care and accountability might be brought to bear on the methods, strategies, and frameworks designers take up. I use a case study of technology development to examine how designers might cultivate an active commitment to transformative struggle within engineering worlds. Exploring histories of erasure as sites of collective imagination, this work suggests design methods might reorganize the work of affiliation, feeling, and contact among those designing and designed.
