Aging, Memory, Aesthetics

Aging, Memory, Aesthetics

This working group explores inter-related matters of aging and memory.  Building on a successful three-day conference held in March 2011, we plan to establish a web-based international knowledge exchange forum to connect local and international scholars. Our goal is to establish the University of Toronto at the forefront of the emerging field of age studies in the humanities.

Our group brings together an interdisciplinary set of graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty members to read assigned scholarly texts--drawn from a range of disciplinary perspectives--that address critical issues pertaining to aging and memory. Half of our meetings are reserved for discussion of research/work in progress of group members, and our activities will culminate with a lecture and workshop by Professor Anne Basting, Director of the Center on Age and Community (Theatre, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee).
