Human Centered Computing studies the use, design, and broader implications of computing technology in different social, cultural, political, and organizational contexts. Researchers in the human-centered computing group at Indiana University draw from a variety of disciplines, including anthropology, history, psychology, design, HCI, and science and technology studies, to develop new theories, methodologies, and technologies that address the mutual shaping of people and technology.
We seek to understand how technology enables, mediates, and limits human experience, social and cultural factors shape the design and use of technology, and computing technologies and human societies co-evolve and transform each other. Our goal is to ensure that digital technologies are linked appropriately to human needs, human behaviors, human values, and the biosphere.
