In response to this year’s conference theme of why design and the recognition of instability and uncertainty as factors influencing the future of the field, our workshop "Designing [Im]Material Inventories of Nomadic Belongings" revolves around the experiences of being a nomad in our [im]material world of various entanglements. In this space, we will share our stories through the belongings and technologies we carry and discard, problematising nomadism and impermanence as possibilities for resilience and growth. Through the use of various design methods -including collaborative inventorying, somatic noticing and material fabulations- we will unpack together our experiences of mobility in academia, speaking about the objects and affects we embrace and leave behind, the role of technology in the construction of our changing identities, and possible futures we envision for nomadism.
