Resource description

In this paper, we analyze the concept of human-computer interactionin cultural and national contexts. Building and extending upon the frameworkfor understanding research in usability and culture by Honold [3], we give anoverview of publications in culture and HCI between 1998 and 2008, with anarrow focus on high-level journal publications only. The purpose is to reviewcurrent practice in how cultural HCI issues are studied, and to analyse problemswith the measures and interpretation of this studies. We find that Hofstedeā€™scultural dimensions has been the dominating model of culture, participants havebeen picked because they could speak English, and most studies have beenlarge scale quantitative studies. In order to balance this situation, werecommend that more researchers and practitioners do qualitative, empiricalwork studies.
