[Xmca-l] Re: Sociocritical theory a la Kris G



That covers a lot of territory not to connect with, Henry!  :-)
But it is interesting and relevant that you found Engestrom useful because
both Kris and I have worked with him over the years, so there must be
something in common there.

So what if i said that imagination is always a mashup? Would that help make
connections?
Check out the article that Engestrom and i wrote together on approaches to
intervention research and the approach called "design experimentation."
That would be a bridge to what Kris is talking about.

This is a time when a lot can change, for sure.
