Making it Work: Managing Digitally-Entangled Worklives

Speaker:  Luigina Ciolfi – Cork, Ireland
Topic(s):  Human Computer Interaction


Digital technologies have long enabled people to work outside of institutional offices, including at home and in “informal” spaces such as hotels, airports, etc.  The Covid-19 pandemic caused a substantial “pivot” to remote work almost overnight, with significant consequences on how people manage connectivity and connectedness, expectations of productivity, and competing work and life demands. In light of ongoing discussions about the future of work and the “new normal” to come, it is important to be mindful of the elusive, often invisible, work that is needed to manage complex configurations of relationships, technological infrastructures, resources and demands when living “flexible” worklives. This lecture presents insights from research on the lived experiences of mobile knowledge workers, particularly examining the challenges of computer-supported collaboration in remote work.
