It is the last of a series of FPE dialogues held by WEGO-ITN around Europe on-line and in person in 2021 and 2022. In the first half of the meeting, Nanako Nakamura (RSO-WUR/WEGO) and Constance Dupuis (ISS, EUR/WEGO) will present a dialogue looking at how ideas of ageing and generation travel and change in different contexts by drawing on research in Japan and Uruguay respectively. Nanako works with post-capitalist ideas and community economies thinking in a rural context while Constance is in conversation with decolonial feminisms and FPE understandings of place. They will be engaging the audience through telling stories from their research to show how FPE does research differently. In the second part of the dialogue, Milja Fenger (ISS, EUR/WEGO) will invite people to join her in exploring controversies around population based on her creative use of dialogue and theatre.
