Event description

Description

Despite significant growth in the proportion of older people in our society, our knowledge of narratives of old age and gender remains inadequate.Taking a broad historical perspective from the early modern period to the present, this conference puts past and present into dialogue on this urgent topic. By addressing representations of both ageing masculinity and femininity, we ask how gendered cultural narratives can be crucial for gerontological debates and how studies of gender are enriched by attending to old age. This conference brings together scholars from multiple disciplines, creative practitioners, and experts on ageing from third sector organisations to consider narratives of old age and gender, their limitations and the potential for alternatives.
