Thinking Age and Older Age conference

Thu 13 June 2019

MICRA PhD and Early Career Conference

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

Call for Abstract Submissions: Deadline 1st April 2019

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.

Deadline for Abstract Submission: 1st April 2019

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.
