This is the first extensive compilation documenting contemporary third wave HCI, covering key methodological developments at the leading edge of human-computer interactions. Now in its second decade as a major current of HCI research, the third wave integrates insights from the humanities and social sciences to emphasize human dimensions beyond workplace efficiency or cognitive capacities. Where the earliest HCI work has been strongly based on the concept of human-machine coupling, which expanded to workplace collaboration as computers came into mainstream professional use, today HCI can connect to almost any human experience because there are new applications for every aspect of daily life.

Volume 2 - Methodologies covers methodological approaches grounded in autoethnography, empathy-based design, crowdsourcing, psychometrics, user engagement, speculative design, somatics, embodied cognition, peripheral practices and transdisciplinarity.

About the Author

Michael Filimowicz is Senior Lecturer in the School of Interactive Arts and Technology (SIAT) at Simon Fraser University. He develops new forms of general purpose multimodal and audiovisual display technology, exploring novel product lines across different application contexts including gaming, immersive exhibitions, process control, command and control, telepresence and simulation-based training.

Veronika Tzankova is a PhD candidate in SIAT, having previously gained her MA in the same program. Her Masters research was in the areas of interactive technologies within contexts of social appropriation and democratic inclusiveness. Her current doctoral work is in the area of embodied cognition approaches to interaction design, with a focus on contact sports.
