The Ageing and New Media Symposium will be held at The University of Western Australia, on Friday 1 and Saturday 2 December 2017. The symposium will be hosted by Prof Loretta Baldassar (UWA) and A/Prof Raelene Wilding (La Trobe University), with support from the UWA Worldwide Universities Network Research Collaboration Awards. The symposium brings together researchers, practitioners, policy makers, and care givers to showcase their innovative work in the field of ageing – especially caring across distance using new media, and among culturally and linguistically diverse peoples. Keynotes delivered by international collaborators will complement discussion between scholars, industry and community members to develop joint and complementary research opportunities.
