Balancing Work and Military Spouse Life in the Digital Age

On the 19th December 2016, Dr Lisa Wood, Lancaster Medical School, led a one-day workshop in collaboration with Tracy Hauver, student at University of Liverpool. The workshop explored opportunities and barriers in socio-digital support for military spouses and families. The hyper mobility of this group provides a valuable site for exploration of new patterns of working and family life, the impacts of hyper mobility and the everyday use of digital technologies in family life. During the workshop, participants discussed possible digital futures and generated priorities for future research. At present, Lisa and Tracy continue the project with on-line focus groups.
