For the MA Eco-Social Design we are looking for an engaged teacher/researcher with a background in heterodox, feminist and transformative economics.

Here is the call. Application deadline 5 May 2022, 12:00 a.m. CET. If you have questions about the application procedure, please send an email to Recruitment Design. For questions concerning the MA Eco-Social Design and the teaching practice please contact me via email. Our apologies for the bureaucratese form of the call. It is out of my hands to make this different :( But the work itself and the atmosphere in our study course and research projects are sunny and truly collaborative :)
The course will take place as in the summer semester 2023 (End of February to end of June 2023).

The practice-based and transdisciplinary Master in Eco-Social Design is an educational framework for designers who aim to contribute to more sustainable, resilient and solidary futures. It supports students in developing their reflective practice by introducing them to challenges, partners, knowledges, instruments and strategies from diverse fields, which they draw together in their autonomous projects. Based on their interests and focus, students select courses in areas Make & Intervene (Design Disciplines) and Observe, Analyse & Apply (Social Sciences & Economics), to which the course in Eco-Social Economics belongs.

In Eco-Social Economics students learn about concepts, instruments, strategies and practices of economies, which strive for just and equitable relations among humans and between humans and other living beings. The course discusses diverse approaches to economies, which are embedded in societies and nature. It aims to strengthen strategies of eco-social change, and supports students in sharpening their reflective practice as eco-social designers.
