It is axiomatic that the life course perspective is fundamental to understanding unequal ageing. People move through various life stages as they age, experiencing different social roles and relationships with others, who are each doing the same. Social and cultural processes and policy encounters provide the context for these experiences, shaping what is possible, and the attendant life chances. Life course researchers have shown that ageing is unequal with respect to a number of key axes of dis/advantage such as social class, gender, and ethnicity – but what about the ways in which these axes of dis/advantage overlap and interact with each other? This is the topic of a new paper we have published in the European Journal of Ageing.
