Call for additional contributions: “The Age of COVID-19” series

Dear colleagues,

Here’s hoping that you and yours are keeping safe and well. And hoping also that you have seen and appreciated the eight installments (so far) in the “Age of COVID-19” blog post series, a collaborative effort between AAGE and Somatosphere. If not, you can find it on our AAGE site, or on Somatosphere.

Further contributions are welcome! 

As a scholar of aging and gerontology: What do you know, wonder, or worry is happening in your field site during this pandemic? What lessons might the study of aging have to offer to the world, in the face of this crisis?

The Association for Anthropology, Gerontology, and the Lifecourse (AAGE) invites reflections that highlight questions, concerns, and observations relating to aging as a dimension of the COVID-19 pandemic. We envision short, conversational pieces that may be modest in the claims made, but draw on our individual and collective knowledge to offer questions, insights and perspectives from the anthropology of aging.

Over the coming weeks, we will be hosting a series of short research and reflective pieces on the Age of COVID-19. Pieces should be 500-800 words. We encourage you to supplement your piece with images or visual material! Please send your submission to Narelle.Warren@monash.edu
