Welcome to the Cultural Context of Aging Home Page

One of the main purposes of this web site is to provide support for the new edition of:

THE CULTURAL CONTEXT OF AGING: WORLDWIDE PERSPECTIVES
3RD EDITION, 2009. Jay Sokolovsky, editor. Greenwood Press.

NOW with a Web Book - 10 additional chapters available on the web

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS SITE IS ACTIVELY UNDER CONSTRUCTION AND NOT ALL THE NEW MATERIALS AND CONNECTIONS ARE IN PLACE

This web site is dedicated to promoting teaching and research of the cross-cultural, qualitative and global study of aging. It will provide support materials for the second edition of my text, The Cultural Context of Aging. This includes on-line course syllabi from instructors around the country,  extensive supplementary resources for each section of the book and other numerous links for teachers, students and researchers. Please feel free to click on my e-mail button and share your ideas about teaching and research. To see how I begin my Aging, Culture and Experience class, click on the Comparative Gerontology Quiz and see how you do.   Throughout the supplementary resources look for special features such as Newsflashes, Web Specials and Gerontological Anthropology in Action. This last mentioned feature will have short descriptions or articles about scholars who apply qualitative and cross-cultural approaches to important issues for older adult life.
