Keynote: Professor Chris Phillipson

From the publication of his first book, Capitalism and the Construction of Old Age to his latest volume, Ageing, Professor Phillipson has challenged us to examine assumptions and key issues. His work consistently calls for a critical approach to ageing studies. Professor Phillipson joined Sociology at the University of Manchester in November 2012 and took up his role as co-Director of MICRA in January 2013. Prior to joining Manchester he was Professor of Applied Social Studies and Social Gerontology at Keele University where he founded the Centre for Social Gerontology. He continues to hold an honorary position at Keele University. He is a former Deputy-Chair of the ESRC Training and Development Board. In 2008 he was elected a Fellow of the British Gerontological Society and a Fellow of the Gerontological Society of America in 2012. Professor Phillipson received an Outstanding Achievement Award from the British Society of Gerontology in 2011.
