Dr Camilla Lewis

Senior Lecturer


Camilla Lewis is a Senior Lecturer in Ageing and Urban Studies at Newcastle. She joined in July 2019 from Manchester University where she led an ESRC-funded project about Ageing in Place. She is a social anthropologist interested in interdisciplinary approaches.


Camilla’s research centres on the themes of ageing, urban change, inequalities, housing, belonging and community with a strong methodological focus, spanning a variety of ethnographic, sensory as well as longitudinal approaches. Her publications have provided theoretical analysis on the everyday experiences of inequalities in urban environments and also practical suggestions for how to tackle marginalisation in socially excluded groups. From 2018-2019 she led an ESRC-funded project entitled ‘The experience of 'ageing in place' over time: a longitudinal perspective’.
