Abstract

Cultural gerontology has emerged in the last decade as one of the most lively and insightful areas of academic analysis. Drawing together work across the humanities and social sciences, it has changed the ways in which we study later years, challenging old stereotypes and bringing new theories, new methodologies, and new forms of political and intellectual engagement to bear. In this Handbook we draw together work in this field, displaying the range and potentiality of the area, revealing its current vibrancy and future promise, with the aim of providing a position statement for the field.
