In the last decades, aging, care, and migration have become central concerns on an individual as well as on a societal level. Highlighting the significance of exchange between disciplines on these topics, the Second Interdisciplinary Doctoral Symposium on Aging, Care and Migration taking place virtually on October 19-20, aims at facilitating the international exchange of PhD students and establishing an early career network of emerging scholars.
We are delighted to announce that the keynote on Day 1 will be given by Prof. Dr. Sandra Torres (Uppsala University, Sweden), leading expert in the field of Social Gerontology and Migration Studies, on “Caring democracy: the role that theoretically-astute understandings of ethnicity and race must play”. Additionally, Prof. Torres will hold a skills workshop on Day 1.
Focusing on the interplay between aging, care, and migration, PhD students will present their projects on Day 2 dealing with topics including cultural and literary representations of aging, migration, and care, discourses of inclusion, exclusion, and attribution, questions of health and wellbeing, ethics, justice, and equality, intersectionality/intersectional discrimination, marginalization and othering, gender, LGBTQ2S+, ethnicity, (transnational) care migration, or policy development.
