Jeffrey Bardzell is Professor of Informatics and Director of the HCI/Design program in the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering at Indiana University – Bloomington. His research examines both design theory and emerging IT use practices. His work on design theory has focused on critical design, research through design, and design criticism. His research on emerging IT use practices includes critical-empirical studies on maker communities in the United States and Asia, intimate and sexual interaction, and online creative communities. A common thread throughout this work is the use of aesthetics—including the history of criticism, critical theory, and analytic aesthetics—to understand how concepts, materials, forms, ideologies, experiential qualities, and creative processes achieve coherence in design objects. He is co-editor of Critical Theory and Interaction Design (MIT Press, in press) and co-author of Humanistic HCI (Synthesis Lectures in Human-Centered Informatics, 2015). He is working on a monograph, tentatively titled, Design as Research. Bardzell’s work is funded by the National Science Foundation and the Intel Science and Technology Center for Social Computing. He is co-director of the Cultural Research in Technology group and affiliated faculty of the Kinsey Institute for the Study of Sex, Gender, and Reproduction.
