Abstract [en]

The general aim of this paper is to present insights from a Polish case study on the learning experiences of Polish older men. The research data was collected by means of ‘guided’, semi-structured interviews. This paper presents two well-educated older men's life stories from two different local communities in Poland and the analyses of their life experiences in the context of masculinities and ageing using a bio-graphical learning approach. The analyses of the two biographical narratives have shown the diversity in the life histories of older men, but also similar struggles and challenges. They have illustrated how older men cannot simply be reduced to their experience of ageing, but that they also carry some con-tinuously (re)negotiated struggles with masculinity, weaving new and rich threads for learning that is lifelong and life-wide.

Abstract [sl]

Namen prispevka je predstaviti poljsko študijo primerov o izkušnjah učenja starejših Poljakov. Podatki so bili zbrani s pomočjo delno strukturiranih vodenih intervjujev. Prispevek se osredotoča na življenjski zgodbi dveh izobraženih starejših moških iz različnih lokalnih skupnosti na Poljskem in analizi njunih življenjskih izkušenj v okviru moškosti in staranja z uporabo pristopa biografskega učenja. Analizi obeh biografskih pripovedi sta pokazali na raznolikost življenjskih zgodovin starejših moških, hkrati pa tudi na soočanje s podobnimi napori in izzivi. Pripovedi sta ponazorili, da starejših moških ne moremo preprosto enačiti z njihovo izkušnjo staranja, ampak da nosijo tudi nekaj stalnega (pre)pogajanja z moškostjo ter spletajo nove in bogate niti tako za vseživljenjsko kot večrazsežnostno učenje.
