This conference aims to deepen empirical, theoretical and reflective approaches to the field of cultural gerontology. It will explore ways in which practices and interpretations shape the experience of ageing, making its impacts more or less habitable and offering resources that human beings can shape and change. The creation and experinece of meaning during the life course is a central feature of this topic. Equallyy, it will be important to challenge social processes connected with ageing that promote exclusion and inequality, and the narratives that support or excuse them.
Please note: deadline for abstract submission is 30th September 2013.
