Hannah and Ruth presented at the British Gerontology Society conference hosted by the University of Keele this year. Hannah presented a study from her PhD looking at how charities that represent older people present and market themselves, and how this influences people’s willingness to donate money to them. She also presented a chapter Dominic co-authored on ageism as a form of social exclusion. Ruth presented a very informative review of over 17 studies that have investigated how stereotypes about older people influence their ability to perform tasks, such as problem solving, mental arithmetic and memory.
