Readers of this blog know how much the work of eminent cultural critic Margaret Gullette has informed my thinking. A Resident Scholar at Brandeis University, she couldn't make it to my talk at the Cooper Union but her envoys reported back enthusiastically. This week she generously recommended the talk to her network of age scholars, calling me "a public intellectual with a fresh voice in age studies who can attract undergrads and grad students and explain to large mixed audiences what anti-ageism is." Make my day! And then some.
“Ashton Applewhite is on a crusade. A journalist and author, her mission is to raise awareness of ageism in America and get people young and old to join her in speaking out against it.”
