Yes conference season is over for now. Had the opportunity, no let me rephrase that, privilege to attend and present at 5 different occasions.
Gave a talk about online shopping for surveillance safety. Safety products that claim to support dementia care. But also attended a masterclass where I could ‘test’ my own research design with reactions from my peers, and (very) experiences Gerontechnology experts. My audiences consisted out of researchers, designers, entrepreneurs, and most importantly carers and people living with dementia.
The next phase has started which is recruitment of participants for my group discussions about surveillance, the media and empowerment. Can’t wait to be back in the Netherlands again and get things started!
in July, I’ll be on the road again to Manchester for the British Society of Gerontechnology conference. Will be part of a symposium about POWER, ageing, and technology. Yes you read that correctly: WHO HAS THE POWER WHEN IT COMES TO AGEING? For all you Foucault lovers, this will be your cup of tea.
Save to say that I met my goal of conferences this year.
