Lecture by Visiting Professor - Professor Graham Rowles

Jul 2013

Professor Graham Rowles, is a Professor in the Graduate Center for Gerontology at the University of Kentucky, USA. He holds joint appointments in Nursing, Behavioral Science, Geography and Health Behavior. His research, in the field of environmental gerontology, focuses on the lived experience of aging in different contexts. A central theme of this work is exploration, employing qualitative methodologies, of the changing relationship between elders and their environments with advancing age and the implications of these relationships for health and wellbeing. He has conducted in-depth ethnographic research with elderly populations in urban (inner city), rural (Appalachian), and nursing facility environments.

The Irish Centre for Social Gerontology is delighted to welcome Professor Rowles to NUI Galway. He will give a public seminar on Monday 8th July at 1pm in CA110, Cairnes Building entitled "Relocation Trajectories and the Making and Remaking of Place." This is a free event and all are welcome.
