Fragile Robots and Coincidental Innovation: Turning Socio-Gerontechnology towards Ontology

Publikation: Bog/antologi/afhandling/rapportAntologiForskningfagfællebedømt

This chapter explores how socio-gerontechnology scholars can develop analyses that aim to interfere with pervasive discourses about technology and ageing in ways that work against singularity and fixity. Inspired by recent debates in Science & Technology Studies about a turn to ontology we propose that these debates present a mode of reflexivity that may enable socio-gerontechnologist’s to engage analytically and critically with their subject matters in new ways, in order to interfere with reified ideas about older people, technology and innovation.
