Profile

Research Description

Paul Higgs is professor of Sociology of Ageing at UCL. His research interests stem from work he conducted with Dr Chris Gilleard which has been published in three books 'Cultures of ageing: Self citizen and society' (2000) and 'Contexts of ageing: Class, cohort and community' (2005). From 2005 -2008 he directed an ESRC/AHRC funded project 'From passive to active consumers: Older people's consumption 1998-2001'. He also co-authored a book 'Medical sociology and old age' (2009) with Ian Rees Jones of Cardiff University. Another book with Chris Gilleard on the embodiment of ageing was published in 2013 as well as a book on social class and later life edited with Marvin Formosa. From 2009 to 2011 he was a co-organiser of an ESRC funded seminar series on 'new ageing populations'. In 2012 he began (with Karen Lowton, KCL) an ESRC funded project on adult survivors of child liver transplants. He is currently a co-investigator on two 5 year NIHR/ESRC projects MARQUE and PRIDE investigating dementia.
