This year the Ageing, Body and Society study group is holding its annual day conference in Manchester, in collaboration with MICRA, University of Manchester. The theme of the day is Ageing and Culture. We will also be celebrating the publication of The Routledge Handbook of Cultural Gerontology

We are 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.

Our aim is to bring 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.
