BSA Ageing, Body and Society Study Group 7th Annual Conference: Ageing and Culture

Friday 26 February 2016

This year the Ageing, Body and Society study group held its annual day conference in Manchester, in collaboration with MICRA, University of Manchester. The theme of the day was Ageing and Culture. We also celebrated the publication of The Routledge Handbook of Cultural Gerontology
We were delighted to welcome a keynote address by Professor Andy Bennett (Griffith University, Brisbane, Australia) entitled 'Music Scenes and Ageing Bodies' and a plenary panel on Cultural Gerontology.

The conference brought together academics and researchers from the arts and humanities, the sociology of ageing and social gerontology to provide a critical analysis of key perspectives and debates, and consider avenues for future agendas, within the field of cultural gerontology.
