Workshop Conference of the Association for Anthropology and Gerontology
United States

Workshop Conference of the Association for Anthropology and Gerontology

February 5-7, 2015 Miami, Florida

The next Workshop Conference of the Association for Anthropology and Gerontology will be held at Florida International University in Miami, February 5-7, 2015.

This year’s conference theme is: “Health Disparities in Aging.” We will consider entries on aging among minority groups, the experience of aging among immigrants, and other vulnerable populations around the world.

The AAGE conference is a small-scale meeting devoted to anthropological approaches to aging research, with ample opportunities for interaction and discussions without the distractions of a larger conference. AAGE conferences provide valuable opportunities to receive feedback on new work, hear “what’s happening” in the anthropology of aging, share tips on research techniques and resources, expand your networks, and reflect on and contribute to the direction of AAGE’s future development as an organization. Papers from past conferences have been published as a special issue of the association’s journal. There will be mentoring opportunities for students, and a session with the local department of aging on applying aging research to policy.
