The Emerging Technologies Lab is one of Australia’s most exciting new research facilities and we want you to be a part of it!

Sitting across both the fast-growing Faculty of IT (FIT) and Monash Art Design & Architecture (MADA), the Emerging Technologies Lab is a fascinating intersection of research areas, undertaking critical interdisciplinary and international research into the social, cultural and experiential dimensions of the design, use and futures of new and emerging technologies.

We investigate an emerging technological environment where automation, artificial intelligence, data and the questions of ethics, responsibility and user experience conflate in unpredictable ways that are important to understand. Our internationally leading researchers bring together high quality theoretical and ethnographic academic scholarship with engagement with external stakeholders, and advocate for the design of better, responsible and ethical futures. Our work advances new theory and ethnographic and futures methodologies drawing from design, anthropology, sociology and geography. The Lab’s core themes include energy futures, future mobilities, public space, e-waste and design for wellbeing.
