Changing Behaviour Through Technology: Therapeutic Culture and the Digital Revolution

This project seeks to analyse how technology and therapeutic culture are enacted within international development.

Use of technology to elicit behavioural and psychological change is fast becoming a key frontier in international development policy delivered by state and non-state actors. This project analyses the social life and cultural biographies (production, use, appropriation and resistance) of digital technologies for behaviour change in India, South Africa and Australia. The project aims to develop a new research method to analyse how technology and therapeutic culture are enacted within international development.
