NEW TECHNOLOGIES AND INSTITUTIONALIZATION OF EVERYDAY FAMILY LIFE IN LIQUID MODERNITY
Languages of publication
Tools are one of the basic carriers of culture. Most individual activities, including family practices, have their roots in objects. The introduction of new tools has always been resisted at the beginning because it violatedthe institutionalized forms of life. Contemporary processes that deeply change the family make old behaviour patterns affecting family life useless. Furthermore, tools continue to develop and new devices, such as thecomputer or the mobile phone, keep coming out. New communication technologies require new behaviour patterns that institutionalize various forms of family life occurring in liquid modernity.
