Abstract

Memories collected across the life-course often inform our sense of who we are and what is important to us, as we grow older. This presentation draws on the findings of a qualitative life-history research project that set out to explore older UK migrant women’s quality of life, across the life course. It has two main aims. One aim is to contribute to existing theorizations of social memory. A second, is to show the extent to which migrant women’s memories of life-altering events influence their satisfaction with life as they grow older. The article concludes by arguing for an approach to the study of ageing that is sensitive to the impact of memories on experiences of growing older.
