On December 8 and 9, 2022, a conference on ageing in the Soviet Union will be held at the University of Basel. Guests from various universities will present on a variety of topics, ranging from discussions of gender-specific experiences to the role of the gerontologist in the USSR. The conference tries to contribute to the rather under-researched field of old age in the Soviet Union, by looking at the topic from social, cultural, economical and other perspectives.

9.12.: Deutsches Seminar, University of Basel, Nadelberg 4, 4051 Basel, Room 5
