Presentation at the British Society of Gerontology conference in Newcastle
Dr Loretta Platts will present WHERL research at the British Society of Gerontology conference in Newcastle. The paper will be part of a symposium called “Opportunities and obstacles to extending working lives. Multidisciplinary, lifecourse and cross-national perspectives”, organized by Dr Martin Hyde from the University of Manchester. Loretta will present a paper on re-entry to the labour market following retirement, taking a life course and gendered perspective.
The symposium will also feature researchers from other cross-research council funded consortia on extending working lives. Dr Ewan Carr from renEwL will present work on working conditions as predictors of retirement preferences and exit from employment and Dr David Lain will examine whether workers aged over 65 in the UK represent the new “Precariat”.
