Synopsis: The unit examines gender, age, ethnicity, and culture and how they shape social status, ideas about women, and cultural interactions. By exemplifying the experiences and social position of older people in a variety of communities, it considers how women and men experience aging differently, explores how ageism can intensify adaptations to the aging process, how aging can be experienced in diverse ways in different cultures, and analyses and compares intergenerational confrontations and collaborations across cultures.
