Structure and Agenda

Activity Description

Welcome and Participant Introductions: By way of introduction, participants will be asked to bring an artifact (digital or not) drawn from their own research interests, and to discuss its historical role, methods for unpacking it, or concepts to frame it.

Working Papers: Short presentations by attendees of examples of in-process work that focuses on historical topics, or historiographic method. Papers will be chosen (from organizers and participants) to cover a range of topics, geographic areas, populations, and methods. Extensive time will be reserved to reflect and discuss.

Lightning Talks: Small panels will be invited (from the organizers and participants) to briefly introduce exemplary historical work in CSCW or exemplary historiographic method.  Extensive time will be reserved during each session to reflect and discuss.

Peer Feedback Session: Participants will divide into pre-assigned groups, based on the domains and/or methods of their position papers, to give and receive feedback on their submissions, share ideas, and discuss common themes or areas of departure.

Resource Brainstorming Exercise: What resources can we as a community create that would help advance workshop goals to support increased connections between CSCW/HCI and historical research? During this session ‘live transcribers’ will draft material to be posted on the website.
