Conference Presentation

The fellowship work has been disseminated at international venues.

Recently I presented a collaborative research-through-design project at the ACM CHI 2018 Conference, which took place in Montréal 21-26 April. The paper was entitled: 'Admixed Portrait: Design to Understand Facebook Portrayals in New Parenthood', available to download through the ACM Digital Library: https://doi.org/10.1145/3173574.3173586.

The study explored how Facebook photos represented mothers, fathers, and 'new arrivals' during the major life transition of becoming a parent for the first time.  At the conference we presented new evidence to inform the design of online interfaces to social media that afford reciprocal awareness for supporting online self-expression and digital literacy.
