Ageing as a Unique Experience

Interdisciplinary Approaches to Ageing and Later Life from Social and Humanities Perspectives

This Special Issue invites manuscripts of original research to critically explore the experience of old age and the process of growing old from the social sciences and/or humanities perspectives. It opens space for topics related to social gerontology, social anthropology, age and gender studies, body politics, sexuality, active and healthy ageing, cultural and literary gerontology, and other related disciplines. This call seeks to collect arguments that show the variables and uniqueness of later life, and we welcome contributions that expand on the current theoretical frameworks in the field of age studies overall.

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2020.
