Research Materials

Diverse Experiences of ADM: Design, Curation and Use

Focus Areas: News and Media, Transport and Mobility, Health, and Social Services
Research Program: People
Status: Active

The ‘Diverse Experiences of ADM’ is the overarching thematic title for a collection of studies that examine the social, cultural and ethical dimensions of how people understand and experience ADM and other new and emerging technologies. This project explores how members of diverse communities shape existing, emerging and future practices of ADM in an effort to understand and develop equitable futures. Several studies address disabled people’s lived experiences of ADM and other emerging technologies and what services they would like to see introduced to better support their care and wellbeing. Others look at health technology startups and the thinking behind developers’ visions of future technologies and identify how health and medical technologies are portrayed in Australian industry websites and news reports. One strand addresses gender, sexual health and digital contraception technologies.

Digital mental health is also a focus of some of the studies conducted in this project. There is a strong emphasis on using participatory, experimental, creative and arts-based methods to conduct research and to engage in community research translation and engagement, including artworks, zines and exhibitions. There is also a more-than-human orientation across this project, identifying the entanglements of humans not only with digital devices, software and data but with other animals and living things and the physical elements of the ecosystems in which these technologies are imagined, developed, promoted, used or resisted.
