Digital Connections and Family Practices

Silva, Elizabeth (2018). Digital Connections and Family Practices. In: Neves, Barbara and Casimiro, Claudia eds. Connecting Families? Information & Communication Technologies, Generations, and the Life Course. Basingstoke: Policy Press, pp. 273–294.



I frame my discussion of digital connections and family practices under two headings: (1) intergenerational connections, and (2) connections of sexuality, intimacy, and over fractured spaces. A final section discusses research agendas, focusing on what we know, what we need to know and how to go about knowing. In this I claim for the use of multiple methods to develop knowledge about digital transformations in family practices and beyond, vital for current social sciences.
