Shaowen Bardzell is an Associate Professor of Human-Computer Interaction Design in the School of Informatics and Computing and the Affiliated Faculty of the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction at Indiana University.
Known for her work in feminist HCI, Bardzell’s research centers on a network of concepts of interest to both feminists and HCI, including scientifically rigorous and socially just research methodologies, emancipatory and participatory social science, human sexuality, embodiment, marginality, collective creativity, and everyday aesthetics. Recent work has focused on exploring the intersections between HCI’s rising interest in social change and feminist social science, research through design and critical design, material interactions, and the application of critical and cultural theories for developing concept-driven design strategies. Her work is supported by the National Science Foundation and the Intel Science and Technology Center on Social Computing program.
Bardzell is on the editorial board of the journal Interacting with Computers, and is the co-author of Humanistic HCI in the Synthesis Lectures on Human-Centered Informatics (Morgan & Claypool Publishers, in press), and a co-editor of Critical Theory and Interaction Design (MIT Press, in press). She co-directs the Cultural Research in Technology (CRIT) Group at Indiana University—Bloomington.
