(p.3) 1 Introduction

Alex Kirlik

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter begins with a brief discussion of the human-technology interaction (HTI) approach. It then explains the rationale behind the compilation of HTI research articles in this volume. A recurring theme across these articles was a desire to not merely inform, but to reform. One can read the pieces collected here simultaneously as an extended complaint and, more importantly, a set of recommendations—or at least object lessons—for how HTI research ought to broaden both its perspective and its practical, even moral, aspirations.

Keywords:   object lessons, HTI research, practical aspirations
