Braving Citational Justice within HCI

November 13, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm EST

I invite you to attend a talk by Neha Kumar and Naveena Karusala on the topic of Braving Citational Justice within HCI, on Friday, November 13th, 2:30 pm PST. This talk was originally given as part of the “Critical Perspectives on Technology seminar series” at TU Wien and we hope to create space for further discussion. We will be using this Zoom link. Abstract and bios are below. Hope to see you there!


Central to the sharing of knowledge are citations, and how, why, and where citations are used has been an intense subject of study across disciplines. We discuss the politics of knowledge production within HCI, drawing on parallels from related fields, as well as reflecting on our own experiences of being cited and not cited, citing, and not citing. We also present recommendations for making concrete changes across the individual and structural in HCI, related to how we view citations, and how we might move towards the idea of citational justice.


Neha Kumar is an assistant professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where she conducts research at the intersection of human-centered computing and global development. She is learning to cite justly.

Naveena Karusalais a fourth-year Ph.D. student in the ICTD lab at the University of Washington. Her work is at the intersection of HCI, global development, and health messaging. Her ideal world is one in which we do not value a work or individual by citation count.
