Granny @ Work is an impassioned comment on aging, work, and technology in American culture. As Riggs challenges popular assumptions with surprising research-for example, people over the age of 60 spend more time on the Internet than people of any other age group-and trenchant cultural critique, she forces us to confront the deeply entrenched ageism in today's technology-driven workplace.

About the Author:

Karen E. Riggs is Associate Professor of Communication and Director of the School of Telecommunications at Ohio University. She is author of Mature Audiences: Television in the Lives of Elders.

Review:

"Extremely well-written, accessible, and logically argued....This book will fill a key, but essentially overlooked area in studies of technology, media, and culture....Riggs considers human subjects and communities in a manner that might actually change the ways that scholars generalize about the impact of new technologies."
-John T. Caldwell, UCLA
