What is Third Space ?

Third Space is a research group at University of Toronto where we conduct research in the areas of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), and Information and Communication Technologies for Development (ICTD). We often draw on theories and concepts of Critical Theory, Design Fiction, Political Science and use computational techniques from Mobile Computing, Social Computing, Natural Language Processing, Augmented Reality to understand problems of marginalized communities in developing countries and inform designing of computational tools and systems. We welcome students from diverse areas including Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Information Science, Design, Anthropology, Sociology, and Gender Studies.
