The Old King in his Exile

It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the inaugural Stephen Katz Lecture in Interdisciplinary Aging Studies. This is part of the Stephen Katz Distinguished Vising Scholar in Interdisciplinary Aging Studies program; the first of its kind developed by the Trent Centre for Aging & Society (TCAS).

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, please click here.

Our first talk will be held at 5:30 pm on October 19th at Bagnani Hall, Traill College. We are thrilled to have Dr. Ulla Kriebernegg, 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.”
