Framing Ageing: A Clinical, Cultural, and Social Dialogue facilitates methodological exchange between geriatricians, gerontologists, humanities researchers, social scientists, and practitioners, who can benefit from transdisciplinary collaboration. A key aim is to create a transdisciplinary network that liberates the field from the constraints of failure models of ageing.
Two interdisciplinary UCD/TCD-led workshops are designed to liberate the field from the constraints of pathological, sociological, and economic models of ageing by attempting an entanglement between the biopsychosocial model and the interpretive, the empirical and the aesthetic, the historical and the contemporary, and research and practice.
The workshops explore the knowledge transfer potential of scientific and social science research methodologies (empirical, quantitative, lab-based etc.) for humanities researchers as well as investigating the knowledge transfer potential of humanities research methodologies (historical, narrative, archival) for gerontology, healthcare and the social sciences.
The aim is to create an interdisciplinary network of medical researchers, gerontologists, humanities researchers, and NGOs, while also promoting practice-based research by working with practitioners.
