Lancaster University, Conference Centre
Opportunities, challenges & tensions: linking the ageing and disability rights agendas
Ageing and disability: ’writing in’ gender and sexuality

Thursday 25th April 2013

The importance of gender and sexuality amongst older and disabled people is often overlooked by policy-makers and practitioners.  This seminar will explore points of interconnection and difference.

Keynote speakers:

  • Professor Sarah Arber
  • Professor Brian Heaphy
  • Professor Carol Thomas
  • Mr Clive Taylor

Facilitated by some of the key thinkers, policy-makers and activists in this field, this seminar aims to open up opportunities for original and innovative debate on key issues for policy and practice in the UK. It is anticipated that these debates will also have wider resonance for the developed world.

Attendance is free but places are limited if you are attending in person.  Places are available if you wish to view the seminar via webcam.  Participants are expected to cover their own travel and accommodation costs.  A limited number of small travel bursaries are available (a maximum of £55.00) for postgraduate research students and unwaged.
