AGE CULTURE HUMANITIES
An Interdisciplinary Journal
Editors: Cynthia Port and Aagje Swinnen
We are pleased to announce the establishment of a new journal, Age, Culture, Humanities, published by the Atheneum Press of Coastal Carolina University.
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.
