"Digital Kinning and the role of intergenerational care support networks in ageing"

Max Planck Research Group “Ageing in a Time of Mobility” Lecture Series 2019
  • Datum: 16.07.2019
  • Uhrzeit: 14:15 - 16:00
  • Vortragende(r): Loretta Baldassar (University of Western Australia)
  • Loretta Baldassar is Professor in the Discipline Group of Anthropology and Sociology at The University of Western Australia. She has published extensively on migration, with a particular focus on families and caregiving. Her most recent books include, Transnational Families, Migration and the Circulation of Care (Routledge, 2014). Baldassar is interim Vice President of the International Sociological Association Migration Research Committee and a regional editor for the journal Global Networks. She is co-Chief Investigator on two Australian Research Council funded Discover Projects: Ageing and New Media (with Raelene Wilding, La Trobe University) and Mobile Transitions: Understanding the Effects of Transnational Mobility on Youth Transitions (with Anita Harris, Deakin and Shanthi Robertson, Western Sydney). The Ageing and New Media project re-evaluates the emphasis on proximity in Australian policies of ageing by introducing a focus on mobility, migration and new media. It examines how older people’s support networks are increasingly dispersed due to the greater mobility of their family, friends and care services. The project’s aim is to highlight the current and potential role new media can play in fostering the local, distant & virtual support networks of older Australians. Loretta is part of a research team that collaborates on social inclusion, social innovation, diversity and digital literacy projects, consultancies and evaluations with local government, service providers and community groups.

"Ageing across Borders: Care, Generations, Citizenship"

Workshops, conferences 2018
As the world’s population grows older, how do people experience ageing in global, mobile and transnational contexts? This workshop hosted by the ‘Ageing in a Time of Mobility’ research group at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity aims to shed light on how ageing and migration intersect to jointly shape new social and cultural transformations. Moving beyond looking at ‘older age’ and ‘ageing’ in isolation, the workshop will explore how care and intergenerational relationships are newly configured in transnational contexts; how new forms and practices of citizenship, community and belonging emerge on different scales; but also how borders and boundaries continue to shape or constrain experiences of mobility in later life in unequal ways.
