HCI Seminar<br><br>Title: Reckoning with Design<br>Speaker: Daniela Rosner, University of Washington<br>Date: April 9<br>Time: 1:00pm<br>Event link:&nbsp;<a href="https://stanford.zoom.us/j/97018931688?pwd=TkVqSU54dGUzK1dFdG96WXl0RFhrU... this talk, I foreground situated histories always present but too often suppressed by design practices. Drawing on examples ranging from classroom experiments to collective action, I show that design impacts our everyday lives, often in small ways, along existing lines of inequity. Design methods tend to produce solutions that carry the problems with them. But they also create opportunities for noticing and addressing injustices. They show us that sitting with tension is an important part of working toward something new.<br><br>Speaker:&nbsp;<br>Daniela Rosner is an Associate Professor in Human Centered Design &amp; Engineering (HCDE) at the University of Washington and co-director of the Tactile and Tactical Design (TAT) Lab. Her research investigates the social, political, and material circumstances of technology development and use. In this work, she focuses on sites historically marginalized within engineering cultures such as electronics maintenance and needlecraft. Rosner's work has produced several best paper nominations and awards and appeared in Public Culture, New Media &amp; Society, and other journals, conference proceedings, and edited volumes. She is the author of Critical Fabulations: Reworking the Methods and Margins of Design (MIT Press). Her work has been supported by multiple awards from the U.S. National Science Foundation, including an NSF CAREER award. Rosner earned her Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley. She also holds a BFA in Graphic Design from the Rhode Island School of Design and an MS in Computer Science from the University of Chicago. Rosner serves as an Editor-in-Chief of Interactions magazine, a bimonthly publication of ACM SIGCHI.
