Methods, Theories, and Taking Action through Gender and Feminisms in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI)
The newly structured workshop "Methods, Theories, and Taking Action through Gender and Feminism in HCI" will now take place as a series of five events throughout the Summer and Autumn of 2021. Four of these will be virtual events, with a fifth one taking place in person.
We invite those who are interested in feminist Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and gender-related digital technologies to discuss questions of feminisms and technologies. The event will be structured around a series of interactive activities to reflect and build on methods, theories and practical aspects of HCI. We welcome people from a variety of disciplines (but especially Early Career Researchers) to bring their experience and knowledge to contribute to discussions. We hope that the event will be a way of building an international community around gender, feminist and technology areas in Europe, and to reflect critically on our role as researchers in this field.
Presenters and discussion leaders have already been selected for these events, but due to the newly online format of three of these events, we will be able to welcome more attendees to our events than previously anticipated.
This will be a virtual event comprising a keynote presentation and series of round-table discussions, including Q&A. It will set the stage for what we mean by feminisms and gender, and why these concepts are important to consider in Human-Computer Interaction, Design and beyond. Keynote speaker: Alexandra To

Event 2: Ways of Practice in Feminist and Gender HCI
This will be a virtual event comprising a keynote presentation and breakout roundtables on topics related to 'doing' feminist and gender-oriented HCI. We shall be engaging with practice, practising and practitioners in this research area to identify how feminist theory can be formed from practice, and practice draw from feminist theory. Keynote speaker: Prof. Margaret Burnett

This will be a virtual event comprising a keynote presentation and a series of breakout groups. Attendees of this event will be provided with a pre-prepared challenge by event presenters in a series of interactive sessions to help attendees pragmatically engage with the research method they developed. Keynote speaker: Dr. Michael Muller

Event 4: Establish a Peer-Mentoring Scheme + Facilitating Research Collaborations
This will be a virtual event comprising a series of breakout groups. In this final workshop we hope to turn the relationships that attendees have formed with each other into peer-mentoring relationships and even new potential research collaborations.
