Description

Refreshments from 5pm

Event runs 6-7pm

Ageing is an inevitability no-one can escape. But our generation is the first to see ageing rock and pop stars, and whether they wear it well. Professor Ros Jennings, who leads the Centre for Women, Ageing and Media at the University of Gloucestershire, explores popular culture, commodification, media representation and attitudes to the body.

She will be focusing on singer songwriters Marianne Faithfull, who rose to fame in the 1960s, and Kate Bush, who released her debut album, The Kick Inside, in 1978 and gave her first live performances in many years in 2014.

Professor Jennings is Head of Postgraduate Research, Director of the Centre for Women, Ageing and Media (WAM) and Reader in Cultural Studies. She is Deputy Executive Director and founder member of the European Network in Ageing Studies (ENAS) and a founder member of the ENAS InHeritage research group.
