IHM / Media studies
Since october 2014, Émeline Brulé is a PhD student in Media Studies in the SES department Telecom ParisTech. Graduate of « École de Recherche Graphique » (Brussels) in 2012, they have worked as an interactive designer and ebook designer before entering the research program of EnsadLab, the laboratory of the « École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs ». Their thesis is funded by the ANR project Accessimap (a collaboration with the ELIPSE team of IRIT, Toulouse).
Broadly speaking, their thesis investigate the ways bodies are taken into account in design processes and discourses. Their researches articulate design studies, HCI and sociology. More specifically, they conducted a participatory action research for two years in a special education center. They investigated how inclusion, as an educational paradigm, impacts caregiving practices, and the design of instructional technologies. A second project, in collaboration with Frédéric Valentin was conducted during a research residency at the Carrefour Numérique‘s Living Lab. It consisted in exploring the perceptions of wearables by the general public. It also included participatory design workshops.
