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