Intergenerational Mobilities. Relationality, age and lifecourse
Whilst older people and ICTs might be two worlds apart, a great deal of CMC research has been conducted with people aged 60+. This might be accounted for by the importance of communication in ageing (Nussbaum et al. 2000) and the mobility of younger generations within extended families. We seek to provide an overview of the research conducted with older people in CMC and discuss it through a mobility lens in an attempt to strengthen its connection with the theme of the book. We do so by reviewing studies we regard as highly representative of the CMC research conducted with older people since 2000 and strongly related to this chapter.
