We are pleased to announce the establishment of a new journal, Age, Culture, Humanities, published by the Atheneum Press of Coastal Carolina University.
Age, Culture, Humanities seeks to promote cross-disciplinary, critical investigations of the experiences of age, aging, and old age, as seen through the lens of the humanities and arts. The goals are to consider age as a category of identity, advance understanding of the aging process and of age differences across the lifespan, interrogate cultural articulations of aging and old age, and generate innovative, engaging scholarly approaches to the study of age and aging in the humanities.
During Captain Cook's 1769 transoceanic voyage, he collected a rust fungus in Tierra del Fuego, Argentina. That rust fungus was carried around the globe until it returned across the Atlantic and the American midwest to arrive at Purdue University's herbarium where it remains to this day. The journey this rust fungus took reflects the global nature of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, full of circulations between continents and islands, specimens and texts, peoples and cultures. Purdue's Early Atlantic Reading Group invites you to celebrate this interconnectedness through a graduate student colloquium exploring the material and miscellany, pictures and people, literatures and locations of the early Atlantic world.
