Urban Ageing: Towards an enhanced spatial perspective

Joint Session of RN 37 (Urban Sociology) and RN01 (Ageing in Europe)

Call for papers of the Joint Session
Cities have become central to research on the complexities and multidimensionality of ageing. By combining the perspectives of urban sociology and the sociology of ageing we seek a better understanding of what urbanity represents in terms of experiences, advantages and disadvantages for older residents. We would welcome papers applying innovative theoretical and methodological approaches in studies on urban ageing, but also papers comparing aspects of ageing in urban, suburban, or rural settings.

Submission deadline: February 1st. Submit here
