Call for Papers: Framing Ageing Symposium: One-day workshop for early career scholars, Queen’s University Belfast, Wednesday 14 December 2022

The Framing Ageing network brings together an international group of geriatricians, gerontologists, humanities researchers, social scientists and practitioners and, in collaboration with the Science and Culture Research Group and the ARK Ageing Programme, will host a symposium on this timely theme. With a keynote address from Dr Hannah Zeilig and contributions from Professor Des O'Neill and Dr Gemma Carney, this event offers rich terrain for interdisciplinary exchange.

Early career scholars (PhD students, lecturers or postdocs) whose work could be described as the interdisciplinary study of ageing are invited to submit a 250 word abstract to Dr. Gemma Carney before 4pm on October 31 2022. Please include your contact details and institutional affiliation on the title page. Please put Framing Ageing in the subject heading of your email.
