Summer Shorts 30: Parlours of Wonder, Inter-generational Encounters.

Rich in content, I found it hard to let go researching more of the topics under the inter-generational theme of the 10th Biennial Conference of the Association for Anthropology, Gerontology & the Life Course (AAGE) in Oxford, England this June.  My last post featured Together Old & Young – the TOY Project, which is but one way of promoting social engagement between generations.

Now let us enter the Parlours of Wonder.


A gem of a story of inter-generational encounters. A collaborative UK based project presented by Helen Manchester & Hannah Rumble, University of Bristol, at the AAGE conference; you can find it detailed as part of a bigger project housed in the website, Tangible Memories.

This is the last of my 2017 Summer Shorts blog posts, so I will only suggest that you click through the links in this post and let the story, so well presented, speak for itself.

And if you want to end on a positive sound bite, listen here to the short BBC Radio Bristol broadcast interview of a man, age 96 years, followed by the words of two 10 year old boys – an encouraging encounter!
