Trent Centre for Aging & Society

The Stephen Katz Distinguished Visiting Scholar in Interdisciplinary Aging Studies

It is our great pleasure to invite you to be a part of the Stephen Katz Distinguished Visiting Scholar in Interdisciplinary Aging Studies program; the first of its kind developed by the Trent Centre for Aging & Society (TCAS). The next Stephen Katz Distinguished Visiting Scholar in Aging Studies lecture will take place in autumn 2019.

We do so to honour the outstanding intellectual contributions Dr. Katz has made to his discipline and to the creation of our Centre. Prof. Katz helped conceptualize TCAS and put an immense amount of energy into its creation. He remains an active executive member and understands, clearly, the multiple benefits of attracting world-class scholars to Trent University.

To establish and endow this lecture, Trent University has launched a $75,000 fundraising campaign. Dr. Katz and his family have stepped up with a significant financial commitment, but we need your help to ensure the program is robust enough to attract leading researchers to Trent University every year. To contribute to the Stephen Katz Distinguished Visiting Scholar Program, you can learn more here.

Have a look at the video above to learn a little more about the Stephen Katz Distinguished Vising Scholar in Interdisciplinary Aging Studies program. If you wish to be considered for the the program, keep an eye on this space as more information will follow.

If you'd like to support the program, please do. Our students, scholars, and community thank you. We thank you.

The Old King in his Exile

The inaugural lecture was held at 5:30 pm on October 19th, 2017 at Bagnani Hall, Traill College. We were thrilled to have Dr. Ulla Kriebernegg from Graz University, Austria as the first recipient of this honour. In addition to being an outstanding scholar, Prof. Kriebernegg has enjoyed productive working relationships with several members of TCAS, including Dr. Sally Chivers; both of whom have just released a co-edited monograph called “Care Home Stories: Aging, Disability and Long- Term Residential Care.”
