Life Course, Culture and Aging: Global Transformations

General Editor:
Jay Sokolovsky, University of South Florida St. Petersburg

Published by Berghahn Books under the auspices of the Association for Anthropology and Gerontology (AAGE) and the American Anthropological Association Interest Group on Aging and the Life Course.

The consequences of aging will influence most areas of contemporary life around the globe: the makeup of households and communities; systems of care; generational exchange and kinship; the cultural construction of the life cycle; symbolic representations of midlife, elderhood, and old age; and attitudes toward health, disability, and life’s end. This series publishes monographs and collected works that examine these widespread transformations with a perspective on the entire life course and a particular focus on mid/late adulthood. 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.
