José de São José
My background is in Sociology, having completed my PhD (2009) at the Institute of Social Sciences, University of Lisbon. I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Algarve, Faculty of Economics, and a full member of the Interdisciplinary Centre of Social Sciences (CICS.Nova). My research has focused on social care for older people, exploring themes such as reconciliation between work and care, experiences of providing family care and preserving dignity in later life. Currently, my research interests include ageism, active ageing, fourth age, health and long-term care, inequalities in later life, sexuality in later life and senior tourism.
