Constance Dupuis presented her research design seminar on 21 February at the Institute of Social Studies, suggesting that there are many fruitful discussions to be had at the intersection of aging and environment. She sets out to ask: How can we understand aging and old age beyond dominant discourses of ‘successful aging’? How can we learn from perspectives that don’t construct old age as a life stage necessarily in need of intervention? Where are communities working on intergenerational and environmental wellbeing as intertwined processes? What can we learn from such experiments in hopefulness?
