Ageing: Moving Beyond Boundaries
5th – 7th September 2012
Centre for Ageing Research, Lancaster University
The emphasis of this international conference is the interdisciplinarity of ageing research. It aims to offer greater understandings of the range of issues recognised by those working on issues of ageing and older people. It will contribute insights from across disciplines in order to move beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries by exploring common strategies and solutions in the following areas:
o normal ageing processes and the ageing body;
o preventative strategies and how best to promote active ageing;
o how to prevent and cope with the onset of ‘diseases of older age’;
o understanding how we might best address the care and support needs of rising numbers of our ‘oldest old’.
The call for papers closes Friday 16 March. For more information please visit the conference web site.
