Call for Papers: Connecting Older Adults to the Digital World

Do you have thoughts on digital inclusion and design ready for feature in a journal?

For a special issue as part of the Social Sciences Journal, Ageing & Technology scholars Jacob Sheahan and Bernardo Figueiredo seek papers that engage new perspectives on the challenge of supporting an ageing society and foster further understandings of the complexities of the relationship between humans and technology.


As part of this call, we are considering emerging perspectives that look into digital inclusion and design, cultural models of ageing and technology, digital inclusion, media practices, ageing in place and data, technology paradoxes, feminist perspectives on care regarding relationality and reciprocity and more broadly, the mutual shaping of ageing and technology.


The deadline for abstracts is March 1st, manuscripts July 31st, please find more information here:


Contact Jacob if you have any questions.
