Description

An Interdisciplinary Approach to Aging, Biohacking and Technology focuses on a broad range of issues that cover everything from the most basic ways technology and biohacking influence people’s everyday lives to concerns about equity, globalization and how we humans produce, consume and are consumed by our technologies. This edited collection looks at the intersection between technology and aging, addressing the ways in which technology affects individuals, groups, local communities and entire populations.

Contributions from a range of disciplines including sociology, philosophy, communications, medicine and religion provide interdisciplinary perspectives, addressing questions such as ‘What is the impact of technology on adult bodies, our well-being and our safety?’ The book explores risks such as surveillance technology, body modification and the Internet as well as issues in the aging journey such as the body and its modification; communication, privacy and surveillance; gerontechnology and aging in place.

Critically examining the journey of ageing and exploring techniques such as biohacking, this book is for students studying aging and technology, including courses such as psychology, sociology, philosophy, cultural studies, health studies and gerontology.

It will also be of interest to scholars who are curious about an interdisciplinary approach to age and technology.
