Abstract [en]

Research on identity and ethnicity in the context of migration commonly addresses questions of belonging, being-in-between-cultures, hybridism, diasporic identity, adaptation and integration. These focuses could inadvertently render our understanding of migrants ageless. The demographic trend towards ageing societies and the fact that many are growing old in countries other than the one where they were born suggest that old age may be a fruitful point of departure for the study of identity and ethnicity. This paper will explore the potential fruitfulness embedded in studies of ageing and later life for the study of identification from the standpoint of ethnicity. The concept of the life course, age norms and the ageing body are three elements in gerontological research that will form the point of departure, suggesting that employing an old age lense on ethnicity and identity research may be theoretically profuse. Such perspectives on identities in ageing and later life, may enhance our understanding of identity and identification in relation to ethnicity and migration. Bringing these two fields of identity research together may prove theoretically profuse for our understanding of processes of identification and enable us to begin to understand the theoretical connections between ethnicity and age.
