Om kursen

The course deals with research which conceptualises experiences of aging and identity. Life after retirement entails changes in personal relationships and living conditions. The aging body and ideas of aging are problematised from a social perspective. Needs for social care, medical care and dependence are problematised from the experiences of both giver and receiver. Home, family, death and grief are examples of themes that are examined from the global to the local context. The role of the citizen focuses on the diverse and gendered conditions of aging. Social situations such as loneliness and vulnerability as well as poverty, addiction and violence are considered during the course. The course problematises fundamental theoretical categories such as gender, class, ethnicity and sexuality

Conditions required for the course to be held are that there must be 15 applicants registered to take the course.
