Call for Papers - Aging from beyond the skin

Extended deadline for manuscript submission: October 30th, 2017

For the Winter 2017 issue, we invite research articles and notes that 
explore how we are being aged from outside the contours of our bodies, 
through the presence and absence of interaction with others, in 
materially and technologically organized activities, by living in 
mediated worlds and incorporating mediated voices into ourselves. We 
invite authors to reflect on the significance of media, discourses, 
material shapes and technologies for the form, intensity and diversity 
of ageing, addressing questions such as the following:

• What forms of ageing are portrayed in children stories, films, 
textbooks, commercials, comics, and the thick environment of images and 
narratives in which we are immersed [1], [2]?
• How do people age through gameplay? How are elderly characters 
included and animated in gameworlds, and how are elderly players 
imagined through game design [3], [4]?
• How can one do age through clothing and body work [5]–[7]?
• How do people learn to age as women and men? What are the old and new 
forms of the double standard of ageing across different media [8], [9]?
• How do people age through scientific representations, models and 
methods? How does social and psychological sciences re-create age 
categories, influence and strength and how is it re-produced through 
public communication (Bodily 1994; Rughiniș and Humă 2015; Vincent 2008; 
Vincent, Tulle, and Bond 2008)?
• How do new technologies shape old age and ageing – through 
inequalities of access and use, dis/empowerment in relations with the 
environment, new communities and self-images [14]–[17]?
