Underground tales, overground lives; negotiating a post-retirement identity

Project Details

Description

This project seeks to understand post-retirement identities in particularly ‘mobile’ professions.

Using mobile methods we work with participants who are retired from the London Underground. We return with them to their workplace by taking a ‘Hidden London’ tour of part of the disused London Underground network asking the along the way about their experiences post-retirement and their memories of working on the London Underground. Their responses are then made into graphic stories.

It is funded through the Ageing and Communication Technologies Partnership (ACT): http://actproject.ca/research-projects/ which is in turn funded by the Social Science and Humanities Research Council Canada (SSHRC).
