Accelerating Social Transitions
In the global north we are constantly mobile and constantly purchase goods. As households, we heat our homes and cook and make choices about what to buy. In our communities, we exchange ideas and signal our self-identities to ourselves and others with our consumer choices. ‘Transition’ describes a system-wide process unfolding through entwined social and technological change at multiple scales. By focusing on ‘social transitions’, we analyse our ways of life and our relationships with technologies and infrastructures.
