Module overview

Students will gain an understanding of the individual, social, economic and political implications of population ageing by examining substantive and research methods issues around ageism, discrimination and exclusion; changing family forms and diverse lifestyles; they will investigate the contributions of older people such as their social and economic participation, and caregiving in later life; and gain an appreciation of the diverse meanings and experiences of ageing over the lifecourse by examining ageing through the lenses of ethnicity, gender, socio-economic group and sexual identity, and discussing the methods, data and ethical implications of conducting empirical research on such issues.
