CfP: Special Issue "In the Hands of Technology: Care in the XXI Century"
The incorporation of technological solutions to all kinds of problems is something which is becoming more and more present in our daily life. Teleassistance devices, diabetes monitoring systems, intelligent houses or robotic pets are examples of present caring technologies that condition and modulate our relations with the environment and with others. “In the Hands of Technology: Care in the XXI Century” is an invitation to reflect on the development of care technologies, with a special interest in identifying the main challenges of the intensification of the implementation of technology into care processes.
Faced with discourses that ofen see the incorporation of technology into care processes as inevitable, we propose an in-depth discussion on how we want to be cared for in the future. Not to deny a role to technology, but to take it to the point where it can serve as a contribution to good care. We would like to receive submissions covering all the possible aspects concerning this debate: ethical, social, political, economic, and so on.
