Are biographical methods still relevant?

CABS is 15 years old this year. 
Since 1995 members of the research group have used biographical methods to investigate issues relating to ageing and later life including; new family forms, housing and care homes, sexuality, end-of-life issues, age discrimination, and medication in everyday life.
Our 15th anniversary event will be held on Tuesday 2nd November, from 2-6pm in the Berrill Lecture Theatre at The Open University campus in Milton Keynes. Speakers will include Professor Mim Bernard, the President of the British Society of Gerontology: and founder members of CABS - Professors Malcolm Johnson and Joanna Bornat, Dr Bill Bytheway and others tbc. There will be an opportunity to view posters about the current research projects of CABS members, as well as to think about the challenges and opportunities of using biographical methods in research. Drinks and nibbles from 5pm onwards. There is no charge for this event.
