Technologies Of Intimate Relationships

Explores the role of computer technologies in mediating human communication, empathic connection, and personal growth in the context of intimate partner relationships––what types of technologies should we design for couples, and what are the nuanced, meaningful ways in which technology can transform them? Our approach is human-centered and pragmatic; the method is to develop knowledge in conversation with participants and use technology prototypes in naturalistic settings. Themes of interest include: computer mediated communication, design, activism, respectful dialogue, mutual reflection, narrative identity, critical theory, qualitative methods, and ethics. This research is part of both our research interest in couples and space and place.
