Growing Old Gracefully? Hope, Fear and Ageing
Wed 23 November 2016, 18:30 – 21:00 GMT
Ageing has become a key topic, both within academic circles and our everyday lives. As a culture, we are constantly trying to defy the ageing process.
Join us for a lively panel discussion at our central London venue between eminent cultural theorists, philosophers, psychologists and sociologists to explore the experience of ageing and growing old in today’s world. From celebrity culture to the reality of ageing, philosophical arguments to approaches from social psychology, this varied debate will delve into both how it feels to be old and what our treatment and representation of older people says about our culture.
Audience questions will be invited at the end with a drinks reception to follow.
