Aging Studies Series
Alive and Kicking at All Ages: Health, Life Expectancy, and Life Course Identity
Editors: Ulla Kriebernegg, Roberta Maierhofer
Similar to the issue of health that can both be literal and metaphorical, personal and public, human and environmental, age and aging are concepts that are understood according to time, circumstances and disciplinary approach. In this volume, we are asking for papers that investigate the topic of health within the matrix of time and experience. This cultural ambiguity of aging enables an analysis of social functions of images as a basis for interdisciplinary exchange.

It is a truth almost universally acknowledged that a city does not consist of buildings and inhabitants alone, but also of representations: of the stories that are told about it, in literature and art as well as in everyday life – or, as the architect Kevin Andrew Lynch has observed, that "Dickens helped to create the London we experience as surely as its actual builders did."
Diasporic Identities and Empire
The 2012 New York College English Association Conference will be held at Villa Maria College in Buffalo, NY, a small Catholic college that specializes in art and music programs.
