The storyline of this paper follows the methodological journey to explore two interlocking dimensions of diversity, gender and age. The method known as memory-work is outlined and how it was used to explore ‘our stories’ of ageing. Memory-work, a method theoretically constructed as non-hierarchical, inclusive research and, the individualist, doctoral research project did create tensions and unexpected challenges and these are discussed. It concludes by arguing that despite its limitations memory-work opens up possibilities to those wanting to adopt a multiple lens framework in gender and diversity research.
