Aging and Social Justice Conference

The conference theme, “Aging and Social Justice,” invites work that addresses how age as a dimension of difference intersects with – and is illuminated by – questions concerning justice. Participants are encouraged to consider both terms broadly: “aging” may encompass work that addresses how age matters throughout the life course (not only in old age), and “social justice” may address different aspects of justice, at scales ranging from the interpersonal to the global, and including both basic social science and cross disciplinary research and intervention science.

We seek abstracts for papers, posters, panels, and roundtables, or other creative formats (film, drama, interactive piece, etc.) on any aspects of aging and social justice from an anthropological perspective. Themes may include, but are not limited to:

  1. health and justice 
  2. care and justice
  3.  environmental justice 
  4. economic justice / cumulative inequality 
  5. migration and justice
  6. intergenerational justicejustice, rights, and end-of-life issues
  7. justice systems, incarceration, and aging

Please submit your proposals online by February 17, HERE

Abstracts should be no longer than 250 words. Be sure to indicate the type of submission (paper, poster, other) and if it is part of an organized panel. Abstracts will be peer reviewed by a scientific committee of AAGE members that includes students as well as faculty.

Deadline for abstract submissions:    February 17, 2020

Other important dates:      Notices of acceptance delivered by March 23, 2020   (Registration will be required upon acceptance)
