More about the Workshop

Converging feminist concerns on power, voice, and public discourse through this online workshop distributed across three time-zones, we hope to provide a forum for contemporary feminist voices as agents of change while engaging with ecological issues through an intersectional feminist orientation. This workshop has two interrelated aims scoped with respect to the feld of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and Interaction Design (IxD) domains of application:

1) First, to provide a forum for sharing, listening, understanding, and learning from contemporary feminist voices as agents of change in various public roles (e.g. researchers, activists, educators, students, designers, policy makers, artists, philosophers, community partners, administrators, citizens, leaders, volunteers, etc.) while engaging with various ecological issues with the goal of leveraging existing strengths and developing new strategies.

2) Second, to critically engage with ecological issues through an intersectional feminist orientation that prioritizes the well-being of people with HDSM identities towards the goal of bolstering existing solidarities and sparking new alliances among feminists across diverse contexts.

This workshop will be hosted online as two half-day workshops (2x 2-3 hours). The first half-day will be organized as three parallel sessions throughout three diferent time zones to invite broader participation. This session will spark conversations through three activities: meaking-making, critical inquiry and a generative design activity. We will host max 10 participants in each of the following time zones: CST — Central Daylight Time (New Orleans), CEST — Central European Summer Time, and AEST — Australian Eastern Standard Time. Following these three sessions, the co-organizers will host a final common half-day workshop (in CEST time zone) where all participants are invited into a reflective session, in which the co-organizers present overarching themes throughout the separate sub-sessions and consider ways forward.
