Professor Laura Forlano publishes essay on maintaining, repairing and caring for the multiple subject

Professor Laura Forlano published a new essay in a special issue of the journal Continent about R3pair, which is launching at The Maintainers II. The issue focuses on themes related to maintenance, repair, breakdown and care as ways of thinking about design, use, novelty, and innovation. Her essay uses an autoethnographic narrative to talk about the relationship between human and technologies and introduces the “user-repairer” as a new way to think about users.
