The Oldest Generation

This project was concerned with the dynamic nature of older people's relationships and identities in the context of changing structures of intergenerational support. The aim was to explore how and why certain family relationships endure or change over time, and how these processes affect the lives of the oldest generation. A particular focus of this research was the marking of relationships and identities through key events and life changing moments. The research was conducted with 12 families, drawn from across the UK, who were followed through two waves of fieldwork (life history interviews and diaries) over 18 months (2007, 2009).
