A trip via Cultures addresses one of many most well-liked subject matters in modern HCI: cultural variety among clients. For a few years the HCI neighborhood has been investigating possible choices to reinforce the layout of cross-cultural structures. so much contributions up to now have both a ‘design for every’ or a ‘design for all’ strategy.

A trip via Cultures takes a truly diverse procedure. Proponents of CVM – the Cultural perspective Metaphors point of view – the authors invite HCI practitioners to consider easy methods to disclose and converse the assumption of cultural range. a close case examine is integrated which assesses the metaphors’ capability in cross-cultural layout and overview. the implications exhibit that cultural standpoint metaphors have powerful epistemic strength, leveraged by means of a mix 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 participants of SERG, the Semiotic Engineering examine staff on the Departamento de Informática of Rio de Janeiro's Pontifical Catholic college (PUC-Rio).
