GRN 250 - Aging in Today's World

Description
This class explores the processes and meanings of ?growing old?, focusing on influences from childhood through adolescence and adulthood, with constant attention to how these processes and meanings are situated in time and space and eventually inform individual and societal conceptions of and actions concerning old age. The many faces of aging are examined from an array of disciplinary perspectives using selected readings, film documentaries, consideration of personal/family histories, and a series of exercises that allow students to place one?s own life experience and thoughts of growing old in broader social context.
