Download A Journey Through Cultures: Metaphors for Guiding the Design by Luciana Cardoso de Castro Salgado,Carla Faria PDF

By Luciana Cardoso de Castro Salgado,Carla Faria Leitão,Clarisse Sieckenius de Souza

A trip via Cultures addresses one of many most well-liked themes in modern HCI: cultural range among clients. For a couple of years the HCI neighborhood has been investigating choices to reinforce the layout of cross-cultural structures. so much contributions to this point have both a ‘design for every’ or a ‘design for all’ strategy.

A trip via Cultures takes a truly various technique. Proponents of CVM – the Cultural point of view Metaphors viewpoint – the authors invite HCI practitioners to think about tips on how to disclose and speak the assumption of cultural range. a close case learn is incorporated which assesses the metaphors’ power in cross-cultural layout and review. the consequences convey that cultural point of view metaphors have robust epistemic strength, leveraged by means of a mixture of theoretic foundations coming from Anthropology, Semiotics and the authors’ personal paintings in HCI and Semiotic Engineering.

Luciana Salgado, Carla Leitão and Clarisse de Souza are contributors of SERG, the Semiotic Engineering examine crew on the Departamento de Informática of Rio de Janeiro's Pontifical Catholic collage (PUC-Rio).
