Modern life has been described as consisting of three main places. The first is our home, the second is our workplace and the third are areas we go to socialise, have fun and share experiences with others. 

But now that list has shrunk. As we endure lockdown and isolation, our homes have become everything.

In this fascinating Monash Tech Talks webinar, we’re gathering anthropologists, futurists and sociologists from the Emerging Technologies Research Lab to explore how the home, and our relationship to it, has changed.

With a particular focus on technology, our speakers will make sense of the home by discussing various aspects of this rapid, meaningful transformation. These include the role of ‘smart wives’ like Alexa, security and data privacy, and what we can learn from the dramatic changes caused by COVID-19.

Tune in live next time?
