About the Journal

Anthropology & Aging is the official journal of the Association for Anthropology, Gerontology, and the Life Course (AAGE), a nonprofit organization established in 1978 as a multidisciplinary group dedicated to the exploration and understanding of aging within and across the diversity of human cultures. 

The journal's perspective today remains holistic, comparative, and international. We are particularly interested in manuscripts that have cross-disciplinary appeal, that present cutting-edge research, and that bring creative and stimulating insight to aging studies and the human condition across the life course. Anthropology & Aging strives to advance anthropological theory while contributing to knowledge at the intersection of anthropology and gerontology.

We are a small team of dedicated researchers who are committed to the ideals of inclusivity and diversity and would like to see you grow professionally!  Come work with us!
