Aging in Southwestern Sri Lanka: Care, Property and Intergenerational Exchange

Tuesday, November 3, 6:45-7:45pm

“Aging in Southwestern Sri Lanka: Care, Property and Intergenerational Exchange”

With Michele Ruth Gamburd, Portland State UniversityMichele profile picture

Part of the Lecture Series: “Culture Shock: What Margaret Mead Never Told Us” 

The lecture series consists of free lectures in November, which take place on Tuesdays at 6:45 p.m., giving us a glimpse into the practices of diverse cultures from around the world.

In this presentation, Michele Ruth Gamburd examines how Sri Lankan families handle intergenerational transfers of property, money, and care. Through ethnographic data gathered in Southwestern Sri Lanka in 2009, she explores the norms and expectations that govern the treatment of elders, including the care of distant relatives. She examines local debates over acceptable and unacceptable forms of elder care, including conversations about newly emerging old age homes. She will conclude with some thoughts on how the demographic transition and current migratory patterns may challenge and change cultural norms about kinship and care.

Michele Ruth Gamburd is Professor and Chair of Anthropology at Portland State University. A cultural anthropologist, she received her Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in 1995. She is the author of The Kitchen Spoon’s Handle: Transnationalism and Sri Lanka’s Migrant Housemaids (2000), Breaking the Ashes: The Culture of Illicit Liquor in Sri Lanka (2008) and The Golden Wave: Culture and Politics after Sri Lanka’s Tsunami Disaster (2013). She is co-editor (with Dennis B. McGilvray) of Tsunami Recovery in Sri Lanka: Ethnic and Regional Dimensions (2010).

Theresa Giddings - Joy of Downsizing

Everyone has a lot of stuff. Often we are so overwhelmed by the prospect of dealing with our stuff, that we postpone decisions about moving – even when moving is in our best interest. Join Theresa Giddings of Soft landings to hear practical ideas about how to deal with all those things you’ve accumulated over the years, and to learn why the time to start doing this is NOW.

To RSVP, please call 503.535.4004 or email deborah@cedarsinaipark.org.

You are invited: Caregiver Support Group

Cedar Sinai Park, in collaboration with Jewish Family & Child Service and Sinai In-Home Care, invite you to a family support group:

“It Takes a Village: Supporting Families Caring for Elders”

Caring for a family member – whether in your home, their home or in another care setting – can be very stressful.  Even if you do not provide hands-on care, you may struggle with a lack of privacy, sleep deprivation, feelings of anger, guilt or depression, or an overwhelming sense of responsibility for the wellbeing of your loved one.

We are here to tell you that you are not alone.

Please note that the group will now meet on the third Tuesday of each month.  The group will be facilitated by David Molko, Senior Outreach Clinician for Jewish Family & Child Service. Participants have the opportunity to share their concerns, explore solutions to problems, and suggest topics for future meetings.

Tuesday, October 20th at 7:00 p.m.

May Living Room at Rose Schnitzer Manor

6140 SW Boundary Street, Portland

Please contact Irit Mandelsberg at 503.535.4212 or at irit@cedarsinaipark.org to reserve your place today.
