Abstract / Description

There is growing attention to how people navigate and make sense of particularplaces through the ageing process. Against this backdrop, there is increasing researchon ageing in contexts of migration. Although much of this research focuses on retire-ment and return migration, comparatively less is known about migrants who remainin the destination society, especially in advanced old age. Drawing on qualitativedata, we analyse the experiences of three groups of ageing migrants who have beenless visible in research and policy (Caribbean, Irish, and Polish) and of those living intwo U.K. sites (London and Yorkshire). Using the concept of embedding, we analysemigrants' identifications with and attachment to particular places over time. In sodoing, we highlight not only how migrants negotiate dynamic local places throughembodied ageing processes but also how these negotiations may be mediated bywider sociopolitical events including Brexit and the ‘Windrush scandal.
