Publishing in Humanities, Arts, and Aging

Thursday, June 3, 2021
1 to 1:30 p.m. ET
See registration instructions above
Free for everyone

Scholarship in perspectives on aging from the humanities, arts, and cultural gerontology has greatly enriched our understanding of aging and the life course. It is a vibrant area for peer-reviewed publishing from many disciplines, and there has been a welcome growth in focus in journals on humanities, arts, and aging. This webinar will bring together the perspectives of the editors responsible for humanities, arts, and cultural gerontology in four journals to outline the vision, philosophy, criteria, and opportunities for publishing in their journals.

Presented by:

  • Mark Clarfield, MD, Section Editor, Ars Longa and Old Lives Tales, Journal of the American Geriatrics Society
  • Kate de Medeiros, PhD, Section Editor, Humanities and Arts, The Gerontologist
  • Desmond O’Neill, MD, Section Editor, Geriatric Medical Humanities, European Geriatric Medicine
  • Aagje Swinnen, PhD, Co-Editor, Age, Culture, Humanities

Supported by the GSA Innovation Fund, this webinar is of interest for scholars in a wide range of disciplines within and associated with gerontology and the humanities. Students, faculty, and researchers wishing to learn how to publish in the most appropriate journal in humanities and aging will find this webinar to be particularly enlightening.
