Title of Project: Material Memoirs on the Journey of Life Supervisors: Dr. Gemma Carney (Social Policy/ARK Ageing programme, School of Social Sciences, Education and Social Wrok) https://pure.qub.ac.uk/en/persons/gemma-carney and Dr. Leonie Hannan (History, HAPP) https://www.qub.ac.uk/schools/happ/find-a-phd-supervisor/dr-leonie-hannan.html. This PhD project builds on the findings of The Lively Project (https://thelivelyproject.wordpress.com/about/), a Wellcome Trust funded interdisciplinary collaboration between Hannan, Carney, visual artist Gemma Hodge, and the Arts Council of NI, which ran from July 2016 to January 2017. Inspired by Penelope Lively’s 2013 memoir, Ammonites and Leaping Fish, this pilot project conducted object-based interviews and arts workshops with older people with a view to understanding their life course and experience. The project culminated in a public exhibition, ‘Something of Who I Am’ in December 2016. A website (https://thelivelyproject.wordpress.com/about/) documented the project, an interdisciplinary journal article was published in Life Writing (https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/14484528.2019.1521259), and the findings reached a wider audience via an article in The Conversation (https://theconversation.com/what-will-all-the-stuff-you-own-mean-when-youre-older-69585).
