To date, sustainable HCI research has focused on changing individuals’ behavior in order to help address large-scale societal concerns such as climate change. In this special issue of ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction, we explore new research opportunities derived from redirecting emphasis from individual behavior to everyday social and cultural practices. This special issue will bring together works that use empirical case studies of everyday practices and/or develop theoretical perspectives on everyday practice to critically and creatively re-think how HCI researches and designs for sustainable HCI.
Deadline for Abstract Submissions: February 1, 2012
