Many of us are concerned with the structures, systems and values that we meet on a day-to-day basis. We seem to be rushing headlong to a destination not of our choosing. How did we get here and what can we do about it? This book is the result of an exploration into the ideas of transformation. What does it mean to transform the way we live, to something that we value? In this book we take on the challenge of exploring a potential transformation in one professional field, that of engineering, as an example of how we might break free of common dysfunctional discourses and enter what we call a counter hegemonic 'Heterotopia' - a space or place where we might dream alternative futures. The text is a unique collaboration spanning the disciplines of engineering education, philosophy and social theory.
Caroline is a an engineering professor who explores the boundaries of engineering knowledge and practice and their impact on social justice. She live in Perth, Western Australia.

Editorial Reviews

This is a great project. It has plenty of content and relational structures that will continue to provoke insights and lift aspects of cultural hypnosis from its readers.
