The New Critical Gerontology


Dale Dannefer (Case Western University, Cleveland, U.S.A.), Chris Phillipson (Keele University, U.K), Alan Walker (Sheffield University, U.K.) and Jan Baars have over the last years organized many symposia during gerontological and sociological conferences. The subjects of these symposia were mostly critical analysis of approaches to aging, focussing on implicit theoretical problems which can often be shown to have important practical consequences. These discussions are gathering momentum, attracting a growing audience and involving more and more participants. The most important papers have been gathered in a volume which has been published by Baywood in 2006.
