The Association for Anthropology and Gerontology (AAGE) was established in 1978 as a multidisciplinary group dedicated to the exploration and understanding of aging within and across the diversity of human cultures. Our perspective is holistic, comparative, and international. Our members come from a variety of academic and applied fields, including the social and biological sciences, nursing, medicine, policy studies, social work, and service provision.

 

AAGE is a network of friendly, helpful individuals throughout the U.S. and Canada and in other nations. We are genuinely interested in one another's projects and in helping each other contribute to understanding the aging process and the lives of older persons around the world. 

           

AAGE promotes direct intellectual exchange among its members by facilitating the organization of symposia and workshops at the annual meetings of the American Anthropological Association, Society for Applied Anthropology, Gerontological Society of America and International Association of Gerontology.  AAGE's two annual business meetings are held during the annual meeting of the American Anthropological Association and the Gerontological Society of America.
