August 21st is National Senior Citizens Day! On this day, we are encouraged to honor, recognize and show appreciation for the value and contribution of elderly people to home, family and society across the United States.
To honor the day, Berghahn is happy to present Life Course, Culture and Aging: Global Transformations Series.
The series is published under the auspices of the Association for Anthropology and Gerontology (AAGE) and the American Anthropological Association Interest Group on Aging and the Life Course. It engages a cross-cultural framework to explore the role of older adults in changing cultural spaces and how this evolves in our rapidly globalizing planet.
