I am looking for potential graduate students who want to do further training in socio-cultural studies around topics such as physical activity in later life, the experience of health and illness, ageism, body image, beauty and appearance work (e.g anti-aging practices), disability, gender and aging, the use of assistive technologies, mobility, leisure, and masculinity/femininity and the body.
