About the Journal
Age, Culture, Humanities: An Interdisciplinary Journal promotes cross-disciplinary, critical investigations of the experiences of age, aging, and old age, as seen through the lens of the humanities and arts. The goals are to consider age as a category of identity, advance understanding of the aging process and of age differences across the lifespan, interrogate cultural articulations of aging and old age, and generate innovative, engaging scholarly approaches to the study of age and aging in the humanities.
Cynthia Port, Associate Professor of English at Coastal Carolina University, established Age, Culture, Humanities and was its driving force in the pioneering years in collaboration with Aagje Swinnen, Professor in Aging Studies at Maastricht University. From 2014–2021, the journal was published by Coastal Carolina University’s The Athenaeum Press under supervision of Alli Crandell. From 2022 onwards, the Royal Danish Library publishes the journal with support from the University of Southern Denmark (Department for the Study of Culture). The original website of the journal https://ageculturehumanities.org/WP/ with its particular look and feel will remain accessible for the time being without further updates.
