The age and ageing programme brings together individuals from a range of disciplinary backgrounds with a common interest in age and ageing. There are a number of themes that permeate our areas of interest which include: identity; participation; place; wellbeing; care.

We are working on a diverse range of topics including family and inter-generational relationships; networks and care relationships; issues around retirement and the extension of employment for older people; the care workforce; time and the passage of time in modern culture; the body / embodiment; ageing and technology; social aspects of assistive living; gardening and memory; dementia. As a group we have strong policy and practice links with community and statutory organisations both through commissioned work and joint initiatives. We are currently working in partnership with Age Concern Brighton, Hove and Portslade.


Main research areas

We are interested in a range of approaches and critical perspectives underpinned by notions of social justice and challenging ageism which include:

•psycho-social and post-structural approaches
•life course perspectives
•policy analysis
