Julia Twigg

Professor of Social Policy and Sociology

My research focuses on embodiment and age. Over the last decade I have been engaged in a series of research projects exploring the role of dress in the constitution of age. The first of these, funded by ESRC, looked at women and dress, and was published as Fashion and Age: Dress, the Body and Later Life (Bloomsbury). The second, undertaken with Dr Christina Buse and funded by ESRC, explored the role of dress in supporting the embodied personhood of people with dementia. The third, funded by Leverhulme Trust, extends the analysis to older men. All three studies are concerned with the ways in which dress and age intersect, and the role of the concrete materiality of clothing in the expression of social identities.

My work is part of the growing interest in the cultural constitution of later years, exemplified in the rise of cultural gerontology. With Wendy Martin I edited The Routledge Handbook of Cultural Gerontology published in 2015.

My earlier work addressed issues of health and social care. I have argued for the recognition of carework as a form of bodywork, and have written about The Body in Health and Social Care (Palgrave).

AGEING 1

The numbers speak for themselves: we are moving towards an ageing society with a strong representation in the highest age ranges. This needs to be addressed. The way we age is now a motive of reflection and concern among various scientific and professional fields. Whether it’s Medicine, Cosmetics, Sports, Leisure, Economics or Politics, there are no unaffected areas when we speak about structural implications of this natural phenomenon and it’s social outcomes. Talking about the richness and complexity of the contemporary ageing is the main goal of this conference.

In two days of multidisciplinary programming, we’ll cross perspectives from several fields. From Geriatrics to Sociology, Law, Psychology, Sports, Nutritions, Religions, among many others, believing that the articulation of their contributes and experiences may enhance the knowledge about a cross and timeless interest.

Based on some relevant and current discussion topics, Let’s Talk About Ageing is Multidisciplinary Scientific Congress and also an informal meeting to cross scientific and professional knowledge with daily experiences, and will certainly be an enriching moment for researchers, professionals and everyone interested in this area.

Conference Proceedings & Abstract Book will be published after the congress.
