The global pandemic has impacted every aspect of our personal, familial and social life. One of its distinct outcome is the onset of multiple and overlapping crisis - personal difficulties (financial, emotional, physical, and so forth), separation from family members and social networks due to lockdowns and travel bans, digital divide, and many more. As a pilot study of a broader research project, I am currently conducting a research on investigating how elderly Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) people in Melbourne, Australia use digital communication technologies in handling multiple and intersecting crises during a pandemic. I am recruiting participants for the research study.
The project is funded through the Alfred Deakin Institute for Citizenship and Globalisation. The research study received a Deakin University ethics approval (HAE-20-106). Below is the CFP of the project. Please spread widely. Thank you in advance.
