Anthropology of Aging and Life Course Interest Group
The Challenge of late life Care and Disability in Diaspora. This event begins with a celebration of recent books by our Interest Group members on aging and the life course. It continues with a conversation with Professor Dossa Parin about her path breaking books Racialized Bodies and Disabling Worlds and the co-edited Transnational Aging and Reconfigurations of Kin Work. This work and research has a special focus on field work among Muslim women in the diaspora and recently on engagement with the context of palliative care. Jay Sokolovsky and Janelle Taylor will facilitate the conversation and discussion with the audience.
