My work is at the intersection of health, design and community.  My 
dissertation "Pedestrian Technologies: Redesigning Citizens, 
Organizers and Technical Professionals" addresses some of the themes 
and questions you're articulating. I taught a Masters course in 
Design Languages in the Antioch Seattle Masters in Whole System 
Design program that might be of interest.

If you want to slog, I can also send you the bibliography to my 
dissertation off line.  Do you have EndNote?
