Re-Imagining Aging: Concepts, conventions and challenges

Lecture snapshot

Anne Martin-Matthews will discuss two key concepts that have come to dominate research on aging over the course of her 40 year career, and what their predominance means for ‘re-imagining aging’ into the future. She will also briefly consider some methodological conventions that shape knowledge and understanding of aging; and identify some challenges and opportunities as populations age and shape societies
