AGE CULTURE HUMANITIES

 

An Interdisciplinary Journal

 

Editors: Cynthia Port and Aagje Swinnen

Age, Culture, Humanities seeks to promote cross-disciplinary, critical investigations of the experiences of age, aging, and old age, as seen through the lens of the humanities and arts. The goals are to consider age as a category of identity, advance understanding of the aging process and of age differences across the lifespan, interrogate cultural articulations of aging and old age, and generate innovative, engaging scholarly approaches to the study of age and aging in the humanities. All manuscripts undergo editorial screening; scholarly articles are selected for publication through a double-blind peer review process. The journal will be published annually, both in print and online.
