Retiring lives? Old age, work and welfare

Introduction

Unit image

In this unit we explore the way in which older age has been socially constructed, and focus particularly on how the identity of being an ‘old age pensioner’ (OAP) developed during the twentieth century.

This unit is an adapted extract from the course Personal lives and social policy (DD305) [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)]
