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.
