Introduction. Aging, Communication and Media Technologies
What does it mean to age within “networked societies” (Castells, 2000)? What might be learned if we take the Internet and Communication Technology (ICT) and media experiences of older adults into account in our research? These questions are core to this special issue on Aging, Communication and Media Technologies. Comprised of six papers from authors working in five cultural contexts in Europe and North America, Aging, Communication and Media Technologies offers insights into demographic transformations towards ‘ageing societies’ in the industrialized world, changes in the media and technological landscape, and the variegated practices of communication in different cultural contexts.
