The Gender/Diversity in Informatics Systems (GeDIS) group at the University of Kassel and fempower.tech in Newcastle, UK wish to invite you to a two-day workshop titled “Methods, Theories, and Taking Action through Gender and Feminisms in HCI” that will take place at the Herrenhausen Palast in Hanover, Germany on the 15th-16th of July 2020. All your transportation, accommodation, and workshop fees will be covered by the Volkswagenstiftung grant we are jointly applying for.
In this highly interactive and participatory two-day workshop, 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.
All papers from those presenting work at the workshop will be published in the EUSSET Digital Library at https://dl.eusset.eu/
we are currently working on getting funding for this event from the Volkswagenstiftung
