Repair: Sustainable Design Futures Book Launch and Celebration. A celebration of reparative words and worlds. Thursday, November 10, 5-7 pm. Fleet Library, first floor, Roger Mandle Building (15 Westminster). Edited by Markus Berger and Kate Irvin, Repair: Sustainable Design Futures (Routledge 2023) is a collection of timely new scholarship that investigates repair as a contemporary expression of empowerment, agency, and resistance to our unmaking of the world and the environment.
To celebrate the book’s publication, Fleet Library hosts a festive and dynamic conversation with several of the book’s 25 local contributors and to expand and build on the volume’s chapter “Lexicon of Repair.” Guests brought their own words, thoughts, and cheer as all engaged with repair as a transdisciplinary and transcultural act that opens up possibilities for radically different social, environmental, and economic futures.
