Debating Ageing: A Transdisciplinary Engagement Forum

The Debating Ageing public engagement series aims to examine ageing as a complex phenomenon that requires a transdisciplinary frame of analysis. The series of lectures and events analyse the biological, medical, psychological, social and cultural factors that can facilitate positive experiences of old age. Lectures and workshops will involve academics from health sciences, social sciences, the humanities (including art history, literary disciplines, film studies, musicology, theology and history), medical humanities, psychology, and education while non-academic participants will include nurses and carers, NGOs, UCD in the Community and older adult community groups and people from various ethnic and cultural backgrounds who are willing to reflect on their experience.
