Aging Studies

What is Aging Studies?

Is this an academic or applied field? Do these studies happen in the sciences, social sciences, or humanities? Are these issues more related to health care, policy, or cultural studies? Should it be called Aging Studies or Age Studies?

Good questions! The easy answer: yes, this field is one giant umbrella, overlapping with almost every discipline.

Decisions of where and how to draw the boundaries between Aging Studies and other fields, questions about the applicability and validity of ideas, the debate on the name of the field - those complexities are part of the field itself.
