Gender through the ages: growing up and growing old

Thursday 1st May 2014 (09:30-19:00)
For any more information about the event please contact Emma Lautman

The experience of gender in various historical contexts was punctuated by life cycle stages and age-specific experiences. From childhood and education to marriage, old age and death, studying the lives of men and women at different ages reveals much about the way that gender identities were constructed. The aim of this conference is to bring together historians researching gender across chronological and geographical boundaries to explore the ways in which it interacted with and was defined by age. The themes of the conference will also consider how life cycle stages influenced work, family, love and sex, perceptions of the body and the formation of identity.

Keynote speaker: Prof. Lynn Abrams, University of Glasgow
