Framing Ageing [] is an international clinical, cultural and social dialogue which facilitates methodological exchange between geriatricians, gerontologists, humanities researchers, social scientists, and practitioners, who can benefit from transdisciplinary collaboration.. This network now brings you its first Early Career Researcher (ECR) symposium. Hosted by the ARK Ageing Programme and the Science and Culture Research Group at Queen’s University Belfast, this one-day symposium will take place on Wednesday December 14, 2022 at Queen’s University Belfast. This free event will provide early career researchers who are working across disciplines to research human ageing to present their work, receive feedback from senior scholars, and join an international network. Keynote speaker, Hannah Zeilig, University of the Arts, London will open the symposium and provide feedback to participants throughout the day. Her work, which has explored the complicated ways in which our culture deals with dementia, will provide inspiration to ECRs on how to develop interdisciplinary research on ageing. Other senior scholars providing feedback on the day will include medical gerontologist and co-organiser of Framing Ageing network, Professor Des O’Neill, Trinity College Dublin, cultural gerontologist Dr. Gemma Carney, historian and material culture specialist Dr. Leonie Hannan and liberal arts lecturer Dr. Sophie Cooper all from Queen’s University Belfast. Queen’s offers a conducive research environment for this event with in-house expertise represented by the Science and Culture Research Group, which connects scholars from diverse disciplines around themes such as ageing. Early career participants will therefore benefit from exchanges with relevant disciplines but also with researchers experienced in working across and between the arts, humanities and social sciences. We invite early career scholars (PhD students, lecturers or postdocs) whose work could be described as the interdisciplinary study of ageing to submit a 250 word abstract to Dr. Gemma Carney before 4pm on October 31 2022. Please list at least two disciplines you are working across and include your contact details and institutional affiliation on the title page. Please put Framing Ageing in the subject heading of your email.
