Dundee Arts Cafe - Myth-busting the Generational Divide

    Activity: Other activity typesPublic engagement and outreach - public lecture/debate/seminar


    The idea of a generational divide, where one generation is pitched against another, has emerged once again in the press and policy discussions. A popular argument is that Baby Boomers, who have benefited most from public welfare and economic prosperity, should now be giving some of their gains back to help younger generations, particularly Millennials. But is this generational divide a reality or a political smoke screen that emerges during times of economic hardship?

    Join Dr Beverley Searle from the University of Dundee as she discusses an overview of these topics and her latest research.

    Everyone is welcome. This event is free and non-bookable. Places are limited so please arrive early to avoid disappointment. Doors open at 5pm.
