Kreps, David, & Fletcher, Gordon. (2021). The Impact of Human Choice and Computers and Technical Committee 9 on ICTs and Society: A Critical Sociotechnical Tale. In Michael Goedicke, Erich Neuhold, & Kai Rannenberg (Eds.), Advancing Research in Information and Communication Technology: IFIP's Exciting First 60+ Years, Views from the Technical Committees and Working Groups (pp. 363-380). Cham: Springer International Publishing.
In this chapter we briefly recount the history of the Human Choice and Computers conference series, and of Technical Committee 9, and show that not only has there been a marked focus, over more than four decades, on a critical and sociotechnical approach to understanding the relationship between ICTs and society, but that HCC and TC9 might be regarded as the original and continuing home of the critical academic voice in ICT. We show this through a textual analysis of the proceedings of the conferences, and through biographical detail concerning the key players involved.
