Anne Louise Bang
Dr Anne Louise Bang is currently a senior researcher at VIA University College, Research and Development Center for Creative Industries and Professions in Denmark. She earned her Ph.D. in 2011 with the thesis ‘Emotional value of applied textiles – dialogue-oriented and participatory approaches to textile design’ (Design School Kolding,  2013). Her Ph.D. research was focused on tools suited for dialogue between diverse groups of people around sensuous and experiential aspects of textiles/materials. This work has continued in several projects, giving Bang the opportunity to combine her interest in aesthetics, emotional value and dialogue tools with an interest in design for sustainability.
