Ageing selves and everyday life in the north of England

Degnen Cathrine

Manchester University Press

Chapter Seven, the concluding chapter, ties the book’s themes together. It offers a series of reflections on the ethnographic method and older age by directly addressing this thematic strand that weaves throughout the volume. In particular, it considers the merits of ethnography, and the challenges ethnography presents, for grappling with everyday experiences, inter-generational assumptions and social interactions that forge the ageing self.

Keywords:   ethnography, methodology, inter-generational relations, ageing, selfhood
