Rural ageing

This chapter talks about the lifecourse perspectives that contribute to an understanding of ageing and disability in rural places. It sheds some light on key assumptions about ageing, disability and rural places, and starts with a brief outline of the progress of literature from a lifecycle to a lifecourse framework. It identifies lifecourse theoretical advances that are related to disability and ageing in rural places. The chapter also addresses the way questions on ageing and disability in rural places can challenge present lifecourse analytic boundaries. It ends with a deconstruction of the notions of time, agency and location in time and space, as they relate to rural ageing and disability.

Keywords:   lifecourse, perspectives, key assumptions, lifecycle framework, lifecourse framework, theoretical advances, analytic boundaries
