Panel: Applying Human-Computer Interaction Methods to Design for Social Activism

Panel: Applying Human-Computer Interaction Methods to Design for Social Activism

Speakers: Wendy Mackay and Michel Beaudouin-Lafon
Date: Friday, February 10, 2017
Time: 4:00PM - 5:30PM
Refreshments Time: 3:30PM
Location: Wellesley College, Science Center Room 278

The speakers will be examining the role of Human-Computer interface and interaction design methods in fostering social change - informed by experiences living and working in the United States and France. They will address the ways that the increasing speed with which videos can be taken, curated, and disseminated has influenced what professors, students, researchers, and members of marginalized communities can do to support activism. The results of an Olin-Wellesley-Babson student hands-on video mockup-athon (which takes place on the morning of the panel) will serve as a starting off point for the timely conversation.

Wendy Mackay is the Research Director with INRIA Saclay in France. She heads the In|Situ| research group in Human-Computer Interaction, whichincludes faculty, students, and research staff from INRIA\, CNRS, and the University of Paris-Sud. She was formerly the Vice President of Research in Computer Science at the Univeristé Paris-Sud. Mackay has published more than 200 research articles on human-computer interaction and her multidisciplinary design methods are taught around the world. Her research interests include multidisciplinary and participatory design, mixed reality and interactive paper, situated interaction and co-adaptive systems, and multimedia and mediated communication.

Michel Beaudouin-Lafon is a Professor of Computer Science, Classe Exceptionnelle, at Universite Paris-Sud (France) and a senior fellow of Institut Universitaire de France. He has worked in human-computer interaction for 30 years and played a fundamental role in establishing and promoting the discipline in France. He has published more than 150 papers, served on program committees of many conferences, and worked tirelessly to mentor the next generation of computer scientists and researchers, including 28 Ph.D. students.Beaudouin-Lafon also founded the Association Francophone d’Interaction Homme-Machine (AFIHM), the French equivalent of the Association for Computing Machinery SIGCHI, and served as its first president. His research interests include: fundamental aspects of interaction, novel interaction techniques, computer-supported cooperative work and engineering of interactive systems.
