Boundaries, work and the rest

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review

This position paper takes its starting point in the definitions of work, and of
boundaries often found in CSCW and HCI literature. By looking back at the case of
parental leave planning and on my writings from the past 10 years, I discuss how these
definitions need to be reconsidered, and I summarize ways of doing that. From an
understanding of the groups and communities involved, rather than from an
understanding of the “places” of home and work, or from pre-perceived qualities of the
two, can we understand the boundary drawing and how it is supported through
collaborative technologies. Further examples will be discussed in the workshop.
