Fe­mi­nist HCI Me­thods 2021

CO­VID-19 re­la­ted In­for­ma­ti­on

It may come as no surprise that with the ongoing covid-19 pandemic, we are postponing the workshop. The in-person event (Event 3) will now take place on September 22/23, 2021, the other event dates will be announced soon.

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 four events throughout the Summer and Autumn of 2021. Three of these will be virtual events, with a fourth 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.

All papers from those presenting work at the workshop will be published in the EUSSET Digital Library.
