Finding Meaning in the Stories of Later Life
Gray Matters: Finding Meaning in the Stories of Later Life examines films, literature, and art that focus on aging, often made by people who are over sixty-five. These texts are analyzed alongside recent gerontology research and extensive commentary from interviews and surveys of seniors to show how "stories" illuminate the dynamics of growing old by blending fact with imagination, giving a fuller picture of the aging process.
The Aging–Disability Nexus explores the complex and competing narratives we create about aging and disability, providing fresh perspectives on how these markers interact with each other and with other indicators of power and difference.
