Hidden costs and invisible contributions of adults characterized as dependent

An international symposium to present and discuss interdisciplinary research findings on the hidden costs and invisible contributions of adults who are older or living with disabilities is being held at Trent University from June 8-10 2005.

The symposium brings together researchers from Australia, USA, UK, Holland and Canada and marks the midway point in a five year major collaborative research initiative funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SHHRC).

The $2.3 million project led by University of Alberta researcher Dr Janet Fast, was announced in January 2003. Its overall objective is to create a deeper understanding of the place in society of those currently characterized as 'dependent,' specifically older adults and adults with chronic illness or disability.

Co-investigator and local organizer Dr Jim Struthers says the symposium will provide an important opportunity for researchers, partners in the community, Government representatives, policy analysts and graduate students to meet and discuss interdisciplinary perspectives on the costs and contributions of care within gendered, cultural, historical and theoretical contexts.
