Ageing and Sociology

Aims and objectives
The aim of the group is to create a supportive network for sociologists working in or researching ageing issues across a range of academic and non-academic institutions.  It also aims to provide a means to foster collaborative endeavours and to develop and disseminate knowledge – particularly in the area of theory, where sociology has largely been silent.
