本文部分从自我的人类学角度介绍了Sakari Taipale的新书Intergenerational Connections in Digital Families(Springer International Publishing, 2019)。借鉴本书的结构,本综述分为三个部分。第一部分研究了数字家庭的定义和日常通信技术在连接这些家庭中的作用。第二部分分析了家庭成员和代人在保持数字联系中相互关联的角色,特别是通过Taipale重新提出的“温暖的专家”概念。最后一节在社会政策变化的背景下评估了本书的结论。它还展望了未来在数字家庭研究领域(以及由此延伸的数字人文学科)研究的可能性,这些研究可以从Taipale的研究中萌芽。
