Developing New Forms of Care: From individual to Collective Agency

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Population ageing is now a fundamental part of the landscape of twenty-first century ageing. Alongside demographic change has been the growth of social and humanistic gerontology, both of which have examined the crisis in care and the exploitation of women in care relations. This paper examines alternative ways of 'doing' and 'thinking' about care, highlighting its centrality for research and practice in the field of ageing studies.
