Invitation to Delegates
We invite you to join us for our fifth annual conference at the British Library on Friday 6th July 2012. During the last five years our study group has been exploring the social, cultural and biological dimensions of our bodies as we grow older. For our fifth annual conference we wish to take the opportunity to review our progress and debate and consider our future challenges. In particular, this one day conference seeks to bring together academics and researchers whose work focuses on ageing bodies or wish to widen their interests by exploring the embodied dimensions of their research. We look forward to meeting you there!
