ODEI Spotlight: Inclusive Technology, Provocations for Research and Design

March 15, 2021 at 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Abstract: Perceptions of digital technology have grown increasingly cynical over the last decade, fueled by crises from the Snowden leaks to Cambridge Analytica to disinformation campaigns.  Critical thinking about who is accommodated and who is excluded by mainstream technology is crucial for living up to promises of technology as empowering, but what do these reflections look like on a practical level?  This talk reviews feminist critiques of technology and describes how otherness has been imagined in research on human computing interaction. Thinking about how practitioners and researchers imagine their users, particularly users on the margins, we can see key gaps in thinking, and opportunities for building more inclusive and equitable relationships to technology.
