[New Issue Alert]: Vol 44, No. 2 (2023) has been published!


The editorial team at Anthropology & Aging is pleased to announce that Vol. 44, No. 2 has just been published! https://anthro-age.pitt.edu/ojs/anthro-age/issue/view/43

This Special Issue highlights original research articles generated from the five-year, multi-country project, the Anthropology of Smartphones and Smart Aging (ASSA), based at University College London and led by Professor Daniel Miller. Through five compelling articles (and an excellent introduction piece by Miller), 11 of the project’s researchers offer comparative insights on active aging, intergenerational relationships, grandparenting, ‘the transportal home,’ and the ambivalence of digitalities through engaged ethnographic methods.

Overall, we believe this Special Issue is significant in pushing the intellectual frontiers in both digital and material-cultural anthropology. This issue also includes our regular researcher-interview section, Aging Talks, as well as several reviews of books relevant to the anthropology of aging. We hope that you will enjoy reading this issue as much as we enjoyed putting it together!

As always, all of A&A’s articles, special sections, and book reviews are open-access and free to download.

We are always looking for submissions that question, challenge, and expand the anthropological possibilities of studying ‘age’. We encourage you to read our Submission Guidelines to see if your work might be a good fit for our journal. We welcome your comments and suggestions, and we hope that you will choose A&A as your next publishing venue.
