UCLIC Research Seminar Series
In this talk, Angelika will talk about justice-oriented design and development of technologies. She will first explain what this ethos of work relates to, and illustrate this with examples of her own practice. Furthermore, Angelika will discuss how this way of working can seep into all the nooks and crannies of what we do as academics.

Dr Angelika Strohmayer (Twitter: @tripsandflips_ // @fempowertech) is a lecturer and co-director of the newly established Design Feminisms Research Group at Northumbria University's School of Design. Her collaborative in-the-world work sits at the intersection of technologies, craft, social justice, and feminisms - contributing to theoretical conversations through applied research methods. She is dedicated to the inclusion of under- and mis-represented people in research, design, and academia, and proactively works towards equity, diversity, and inclusion. Some of this is shown through her work as a founding member of fempower.tech, an international technology research collective, and her co-editing of the 'Meaningful Design Processes' Forum in the ACM Interactions Magazine. In all that she does, Angelika tries to work across boundaries, bringing together disparate groups to engage in endeavours that support personal wellbeing, counteracting community traumas, and engaging in public advocacy to move towards more socially just worlds.
