Vol. XIX: Foreign Countries of Old AgeEast and Southeast European Perspectives on Aging 

Edited by Dagmar Gramshammer-Hohl and Oana Hergenröther

5 January 2021, 390 pp.
ISBN: 978-3-8376-4554-5

The exploration of what May Sarton calls the »foreign country of old age« usually does not go far beyond the familiar: the focus of aging studies has thus far clearly rested upon North America and Western Europe. This multi-disciplinary essay collection critically examines conditions and representations of old age and aging in Eastern and Southeastern Europe from various perspectives of the humanities and social sciences. By shedding light on these culturally specific contexts, the contributions widen our understanding of the aging process in all its diversity and demonstrate that a shift in perspectives might in fact challenge a number of taken-for-granted positions and presumptions of aging studies.

This anthology is a collection of papers by researchers involved in the Who Cares? Alter(n) und Pflege gemeinsam neu denken Project and it contains scientific and practice-related experience and knowledge with contributions from various disciplines and fields of practice that deal with questions of age(ing) and care in our society. The multidisciplinary texts show which discourses and narratives shape how we deal with age(ing) and care, which processes are already taking place with regard to positive change, and which strategies are still needed to be able to rethink age(ing) and care together in a positive way.
