Coming of Age: The Aging of Populations and the Birth of a New Global Agenda

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

New York University

Presented By

 

This talk will explore how anxieties about age and aging began to emerge amidst the challenges of decolonization in India. It will trace the political framing of knowledge about families and the life course in a newborn nation as an emerging rank of social experts began to frame a new social imaginary using new social tools and technologies to interpret the social ills of a modern society. This talk is part of a broader book length project on the birth of aging populations as a worldview.
