It would be excellent to have the sociology of ageing and the study group Ageing, Body and Society well represented at the conference.

They  hope to see you at the 2013 conference. We plan to create opportunities to meet and network with study group members through a study group meeting (we will look at the possibility of refreshments), during ageing / ageing, body and society panels and events, and with a meal out one evening (at own expense). It would be great to see you!
