In keeping with this year’s conference theme of “Media Citizenship,” this panel aims to consider the relationship between media and cultural notions of what it means to be a senior citizen. This panel seeks to address the particular relationship between aging and the media, be this in terms of aging audiences or older demographics, aging media producers, aging stars, or representations of aging in film, television or new media.

This is a broad call for presentations that examine this important but underrepresented topic.

Please send a 250-300 word abstract along with 3-5 bibliographic sources by August 10 to nanmcv@umich.edu.
