Uses of Computer Literacy: Beyond Programming to Creating Cultural Experiences<http://hci2014.bcs.org/workshops.html#Literacy>

An HCI2014 workshop http://http://hci2014.bcs.org

Taking inspiration from Richard Hoggart’s "The Uses of Literacy: Aspects of Working Class Life”, this workshop will investigate the creative tools and processes that enable the creation and control of personal culture. We intend to build on previous experiences for a day of exploring history, ideas and artifacts for a continued creative push in HCI.
The Uses of Computer Literacy workshop calls for position papers and artefacts, which stress creative approaches to the making of technology. We will look for work that explores making for cultural purposes.
Amongst the topics which might be suitable for workshop discussion are:


  *   Interactive tools for creative making
  *   Case studies of creative cultural making
  *   Interaction platforms and frameworks for making
  *   Theories of cultural making and computer literacy
  *   Case studies of interactive and Computational Art

Position papers of 4 pages are requested which cover one of the above (non-exclusive topics) or describe an interesting artefact.
Submissions will be reviewed by the technical committee and should be submitted to David England [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>
Important Dates:

Submissions due 5th July 2014
Notification due 8th August 2014
Workshop 9th September 2014

Organisers:
David England, Liverpool John Moores University
Mark Wright, FACT
Andra Balta, University of Central Lancashire
