Workshop Abstract

This day-long workshop aims to support and grow the community of CSCW and HCI scholars that investigate the past to inform the design,  critique and conceptualization of technology. At this workshop, we will  learn from examples of historically-based CSCW and HCI work, explore  issues in historical method that come up in such work, share methods and  techniques, provide feedback and support to ongoing investigations; and define a shared agenda for future research on this topic. The workshop  will also highlight research and methods that focus on non-Western  contexts and that give voice to historically marginalized groups. Based on the workshop, we will develop a white paper and a website that will  collect resources to support CSCW based historical investigations.
