CHI 2022 Online Workshop
Feminist Voices about Ecological Issues in HCI
Even though issues such as climate change, pollution, and declining biodiversity impact us all, people with historically disenfranchised and socio-politically marginalized (HDSM) identities often bear the harsher brunt of ecological crises and suffer disproportionately. Building upon and braiding together two thriving Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) discourses on feminism and environmental sustainability, we invite submissions from researchers, designers, educators, and activists interested in the intersection of feminist and ecological issues with a priority towards the well-being of people with HDSM identities.
Call for Submission
Converging feminist concerns on power, voice, and public discourse, we invite submissions from researchers, designers, educators, and activists interested in the intersections of feminist and ecological issues as applicable to Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).
Our online workshop has two goals: 1) to provide a forum for contemporary feminist voices as agents of change while engaging with various ecological issues, and 2) to critically engage with ecological issues through an intersectional feminist orientation that prioritizes the well-being of people with historically disenfranchised and socio-politically marginalized (HDSM) identities.
This online workshop will be scheduled into three parallel sessions across three time zones, and a final reflective session. Submissions should address and will be selected based on relevance to the following broad workshop themes: feminist voices as agents of change addressing ecological issues in HCI, intersectional approaches to research and practice, and foregrounding the wellbeing of people with HDSM identities.
We welcome submissions in various formats, including video/audio recordings (max 5 min) such as spoken word or other feminist oral traditions, evocative visual artifacts such as collage, photography, graphic stories, and illustrations, as well as position papers (max 6 pages) including a brief bio of applicant(s).
Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "Feminist Ecologies CHI Workshop". Accepted papers and media will be published to the workshop website www.feministecologies.com. Please note that at least one author of each accepted submission should attend the workshop and all participants must register for both the workshop and for at least one day of the conference.
Deadline for submissions:
