In recent years, we have witnessed a rise in voices advocating more human-centered and holistic approaches in research on robotic technology. Towards this end, the adoption of broader perspectives and the exploration of critical questions related to the design and study of these technologies in everyday life have become increasingly pressing. In this workshop, we aim for researchers and industry experts to experience hands-on approaches to explore how we can address critical human-centered perspectives in robotic research and whether critical questions within the area of Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) can be considered a new emerging paradigm: critical robotics. We invite people from a variety of disciplines both inside and outside of HRI and HCI (e.g. media and communication, education, philosophy of technology, applied ethics) to submit a short position paper and join us in an open exploration of this burning topic already identified by the HRI and HCI communities’ leading researchers.
