We are pleased to announce the publication of the book chapter: “Contrasting Ageism in Research on Older Adults and Digital Technologies: A Methodological Reflection

The chapter has been coordinated by Dr. Emma Garavaglia, with co-authors Professor Alessandro Caliandro, Dr. Giulia Melis, Professor Emanuela Sala and Dr. Daniele Zaccaria. It appeared in an anthology edited by Andrea Rosales, Mireia Fernández-Ardèvol, Jakob Svensson. As reported by volume’s editors: “This anthology contributes to creating awareness on how digital ageism operates in relation to the widely spread symbolic representations of old and young age around digital technologies, the (lack of) representation of diverse older individuals in the design, development, and marketing of digital technologies and in the actual algorithms and datasets that constitute them.” The chapter authored by Dr. Emma Garavaglia and colleagues provides a methodological reflection on how to counterbalance age biases in social research.

Coherently with the Open Science principles, to which the ageing societies research group aims at adhering as much as possible, the chapter has been made available Open Access (under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 license) at www.taylorfrancis.com.
