Technology as a resource for reconstituting the social world: Life in a war zone

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We argue that the disruption associated with war can help develop a deeper theoretical and practical understanding of how Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) enable people to repair practices in the work, social, and education spaces. We focus on how people leverage various ICTs in order to reconstitute their social world, which will allow us to develop new technologies to aid those who experience similar situations.
