Growing Old in the Soviet Union, 1945-1991

This project includes three broad areas of research:

  • Approaches to ageing that include scientific research, healthcare policy, medical services, and psychiatry
  • Subjective aspects of ageing, such as what is was like to grow old in the Soviet Union, the world’s first socialist society
  • The influence of gerontology in the Soviet Union and abroad

A group of four researchers are investigating these themes, disseminating their findings at conferences and workshops, and publishing in peer-reviewed journals, books, and on this website’s blog.
