Age, Culture, Humanities: An Interdisciplinary Journal

Submission deadline for Issue #2: 15 February 2014
Graduate Student Essay Contest deadline: 15 March 2014

Age, Culture, Humanities promotes 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.

The journal invites the submission of scholarly articles on topics that investigate the critical intersections of the arts and humanities with the aging process; scholarly position papers on these topics; brief pedagogical essays; and reviews of recent academic book publications as well as of recent fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, drama, film, performances, and art exhibitions relevant to aging or old age.

Age, Culture, Humanities is edited by Cynthia Port and Aagje Swinnen and published by the Athenaeum Press of Coastal Carolina University. The journal is affiliated with the North American Network in Aging Studies (NANAS) and the European Network in Aging Studies (ENAS).

All manuscripts undergo editorial screening; scholarly articles are selected for publication through a double-blind peer review process. The journal is published annually, in both print and open access digital editions. Issue #1 will be released in January 2014.
