What is Old Age? New perspectives from the humanities (CfP, Conference, Warwick, 23 Feb 2013)

Abstracts are invited from scholars from any area of the humanities, for this one-day interdisciplinary conference, taking place on Saturday 23 February 2013 at the University of Warwick.

This one-day conference will draw on the expertise of scholars from across the humanities to offer new perspectives on the ways in which we define and explain old age.  It will also consider the role of the humanities within the interdisciplinary endeavor of gerontology.

The key note speakers will be Professor Helen Small, of Pembroke College, Oxford, and Professor Pat Thane, of Kings College London.

Further information can be found at the website here. The website also constitutes a more informal collection of representations and personal reflections which offer some insight into the question ‘What is Old Age?’.  Submissions are welcomed here.
