Abstract

The Women, Ageing and Media (WAM) research group secured Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) funding in 2008 to run a series of workshops and an international conference in order to conduct a sustained investigation into proliferating print, screen and online representations of older women. One of its innovative features is its aim to link academics from different cultural and intellectual backgrounds and to position emerging research on 'older women' in media and cultural studies alongside established research in healthcare policy, gerontology, economics, social care and sociology that dominates existing knowledge. While the AHRC project has ended, the members of the research group continue to research network along this research theme. This Project is now complete but the website serves as an important archive of the Network's activities. Women, Ageing and Media (WAM) research group secured an Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) grant (£30k) in 2007 to run a series of workshops and an international conference in order to conduct a sustained investigation into proliferating print and screen representations of older women. With this shared research agenda the research group identified a significant gap in knowledge regarding the relationship between older women as consumers, producers and subjects of media. One of the innovative features of this networking grant is its aim to link academics from different cultural and intellectual backgrounds and to position emerging research on 'older women' in media and cultural studies alongside established research in healthcare policy, gerontology, economics, social care and sociology that dominates existing knowledge.
