CareNet is a newly-created interdisciplinary group whose purpose is to understand the impact of technoscience in the social and cultural reconfiguration of care, and also of alertness and readiness in the response to crises, catastrophes and emergencies.
Our interest arises from an interdisciplinary background in social studies of science and technology, social psychology, disability and ageing, and digital sociology. This interdisciplinary background will enable us to overcome traditional (technological, social and medical) barriers that segment and hamper the study of care and societal response to crisis situations. We also build on an open, mixed methodological exploration, with particular interest in qualitative and participative methodologies.
