Writing in the new journal Age Culture Humanities, Chris Gilleard of London's University College salutes the cultural turn in age studies and its attendant view of aging as socially and culturally constructed (along with race, gender, disability, and sexuality). Within this broader framework, aging studies "queers" its older and more established partner, gerontology, Gilleard observes.
"Thank you again for your terrific keynote yesterday. I heard from so many attendees that it affected them deeply. You are wise, funny, and provocative – a great combination!"
