CfP Thinking Ageing and Older Age

With an ageing global population, research about ageing and older people is increasingly important. This one day conference aims to showcase the range of research among postgraduate and early career researchers from across disciplines taking ageing as its focus. We welcome researchers interested in and working on ageing and older age from all disciplines and schools. We are very pleased to welcome our keynote speakers:

  • Dr Tanja Bastia, Senior Lecturer, University of Manchester Ageing, Migration and Development
  • Prof Brian Heaphy, Professor of Sociology, University of Manchester Ageing Sexualities:¬†Personal Life, Resources and Social Change

We invite abstracts (of no more than 250 words) for paper sessions on four broad themes:

  • Ageing populations
  • Understanding ageing
  • Ageing and place
  • Ageing, health and wellbeing

These themes are not mutually exclusive and are designed to appeal to the broad range of research undertaken on ageing and older age. We will also be happy to receive abstracts outside of these themes in an Open Theme. If you would like to attend the conference without submitting an abstract, please use the Eventbrite link below to register. Aimed at postgraduate and early career researchers, this conference provides a great opportunity to meet peers with overlapping research interests and to share your knowledge and experience. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
