Literature – New Release

New open-access issue of Anthropology & Aging (38.1) available.

The Association for Anthropology, Gerontology and the Life Course (AAGE) is happy to annouce that their latest issue of Anthropology & Aging is now online, and all articles and reviews are downloadable as pdf files.

Anthropology & Aging is the official journal of the Association for Anthropology, Gerontology, and the Life Course (AAGE), a nonprofit organization established in 1978 as a multidisciplinary group dedicated to the exploration and understanding of aging within and across the diversity of human cultures. It is the only peer-reviewed scholarly journal devoted to the study of aging from an anthropological perspective.

Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis and there are no publication fees for open-access (although published authors should be members of AAGE at the nominal rate of $18 for students/under-employed/retired and $28 for professionals to partially offset costs). The editors encourage submissions from all fields of anthropology as well as applied/engaged anthropology.
