2nd Virtual Interdisciplinary Doctoral Symposium on Aging and Care - Migration
October 19-20, 2021 (online)
Keynote and Skills Workshop: Sandra Torres (Uppsala)
In the last decades, aging, care, and migration have become central concerns on an individual as well as on a societal level. Highlighting the significance of exchange between disciplines on these topics, the Symposium on Aging, Care and Migration aims at facilitating the international exchange of PhD students and establishing an early career network of emerging scholars. We are delighted to announce that the keynote on Day 1 will be given by Prof. Sandra Torres (Uppsala University, Sweden), leading expert in the field of Social Gerontology and Migration Studies, on “Caring democracy: the role that theoretically-astute understandings of ethnicity and race must play”. Additionally, Prof. Torres will hold a skills workshop on Day 1 (see program below).
