ACTIVITY THEORY AS A FRAMEWORK FOR HUMAN-TECHNOLOGY INTERACTION RESEARCH
Special issue of MIND, CULTURE, AND ACTIVITY: AN INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL (Taylor and Francis)

Special issue editors: Victor Kaptelinin and Bonnie Nardi

Activity theory, which was originally proposed by Alexey Leontiev as a theory in psychology, has developed in the past decades into an interdisciplinary approach, employed in various fields of research and practice such as education and organizational learning. Since the early 1990s, activity theory is also increasingly popular in research areas dealing with human-technology interaction, including human-computer interaction (HCI), interaction design, computer supported cooperative learning (CSCW), and technology-enhanced learning (TEL).

This special issue aims to present a variety of current uses of activity theory in studies of human-technology interaction, with a particular focus on the potential and limitations of the theory as a conceptual foundation for the research, as well as implications of the research for further development of activity theory. We invite high quality original publications, ranging from empirical studies of technology-mediated activities and practices to comparative analyses of activity theory and other theories in HCI and related fields to design explorations informed by activity theory.

Deadlines (firm, please)

    May 15, 2016 for submitted papers

    September 1 for reviews

    October 1 for revisions

The special issue will appear in the first issue of Mind, Culture and Activity for 2017

Please let us know if you have questions!
