The COVID-19 pandemic has put older people at risk, exposing the existential, socio-political, and ethical problems related to caring for vulnerable populations during crises. This webinar explores issues of aging and ageism during pandemic and post-pandemic times with three experts in the field:
- Meghan Joy, Concordia University – author of The Right to an Age-Friendly City: Redistribution, Recognition, and Senior Citizen Rights in Urban Spaces (MQUP)
- Nancy Walton, Ryerson University – author of Ethics and Issues in Contemporary Nursing, 3rd edition (Nelson)
- Andrew V. Wister, Simon Fraser University – co-author (with Theodore D. Cosco) of Resilience and Aging: Emerging Science and Future Possibilities(Springer)
“Pandemic: COVID-19 in an Aging World” is the fourteenth installation of the MLC Research Centre & Gallery’s webinar series that began on April 2, 2020 as an urgent cultural response to the crisis.
