As digital media has become ubiquitous in our everyday lives, researchers in this stream examine the role of new technologies in shaping our experiences of different aspects and stages of life: from early childhood, to care-giving, to transnational migration, and also at the threshold and beyond human life (pre-birth, pregnancy and memorialising).
