Dr Gemma Carney

School of Social Sciences, Education and Social Work

Dr. Carney’s work is dedicated to exploring the impact of population ageing on society and political economy. She has a strong track record in participatory research methods and in working closely with community organisations on social policy research.

In recent years Gemma has carved a niche between her previous work on gender and politics and her research on ageing to develop a critical, feminist analysis of population ageing. Linked to this Gemma has been leading a range of projects with colleagues from across the Faculty in History, Literature and Film Studies. She is also working with Paula Devine and Lorna Montgomery in analysing the Northern Ireland Longitudinal Study of Ageing.
