UCL Minds Lunch Hour Lectures
Ageing and caring in a globalised world: stories from Mumbai and England
Date: Tuesday 03 December 2019
Speakers: Alexandra Burton
Early Career Researcher at Division of Psychiatry, UCL
Lecturer at Jill Dando Institute of Security and Crime Science, UCL
About the lecture:
Alexandra Burton and Kartikeya Tripathi will present findings from a cross-departmental research programme (Division of Psychiatry and Security and Crime Science), exploring challenges of ageing in a globalised world. They will explore how migration and digitalisation affect older people’s needs for support and care, through the prisms of two of our recent research studies: with older victims of cybercrime in Mumbai (Kartikeya); and South Asian carers of people with dementia in England (Burton). They will discuss how we can build on our qualitative research findings and existing manualised interventions #MadeAtUCL to develop culturally competent care interventions.
UCL's popular public Lunch Hour Lecture series has been running at UCL since 1942, and showcases the exceptional research work being undertaken across UCL.
