On this website, you will find all information about our one-day NordiCHI Workshop ‘Speculations on Feminist Reproductive Health Technologies’.

About the workshop:

This one-day workshop invites participants to discuss possibilities of designing with and for reproductive bodies by taking vantage points in existing discussions within HCI aiming to rethink approaches to reproductive health and to broaden understandings of reproductive bodies beyond the category of women’s health. The workshop is grounded in these ongoing discussions, which are calling for intersectional approaches that account for the pluralities of bodies when designing for and with bodies. Through collective and speculative explorations, we are aspiring to find new directions within reproductive health research, to disrupt binary understandings of reproductive bodies, and to explore interpersonal/relational issues when talking about in/fertility that extend beyond the female body. The aim of the workshop is to bring together a HCI researchers that are working with or are interested in bodies and bodily experiences including, but not limited to, in/fertility, menopause, menstruation, transitions, interpersonal as well as more-than-human relations, and aspire to unpack and expand current practices, but also to imagine inclusive directions of design and research in these areas.
