Event Details

How does our perception of ourselves transform as we grow older? In what ways does aging change how we view others? How has the concept of “age” changed over time? Join SU PhD student Matthew Stewart to discuss the texts in this series that explore these and other questions about entering middle age, growing older, caring for aged loved ones, and finding satisfaction in later stages of life.
