This 2-day conference on The Digitally Engaged Patient addresses and challenges the recent transition from eHealth to mHealth and welcomes researchers within the fields of social science and humanities (anthropology, sociology, science and technology studies, cultural studies and the like). We hope the conference can be a venue for critical discussions around good care and quality of life for patients in the 21st century with digitalized technologies for (self-)caring. We seek papers that engage with eHealth, mHealth, and the digital patient within the following themes, but not limited to:
Chronic living and technology – Embodiment and identity – Lively data, broken data – Tinkering and creativity – Sociality – Patient knowledge – Digital methodologies – Aging and Digital Life Course.
