  • Negotiations of vulnerability in aging with vision impairment. [Journal Article]
    J Aging Stud. 2022 Jun; 61:101036.Siren A, Røgeskov M, Amilon A
  • Longevity entails a higher prevalence of chronic impairments that often come with aging, such as age-related vision loss (ARLV). Dependence and increasing vulnerabilities contrast sharply with contemporary reductionist models of positive aging, and gradually worsening eyesight exposes older adults with ARLV to situations where idealized models of late life do not fit them. In analyzing semi-struc…
  • Embodied experiences and existential reflections of the oldest old. [Journal Article]
    J Aging Stud. 2022 Jun; 61:101028.van Rhyn B, Barwick A, Donelly M
  • The aim of this study was to learn more about the embodied experiences of people over 85 years and to gain a better understanding of how they make sense of the existential issues faced at this unique stage of life. This research is philosophically and methodologically underpinned by existential phenomenology, in particular embodiment theory, which allows exploration of everyday experiences and th…
  • Rooted in earth, rooted in community: Aging in rural houses of northern China. [Journal Article]
    J Aging Stud. 2022 Jun; 61:101025.Shin JH, Ma Y, Siu KWM
  • Northern China has experienced unprecedented urbanization over the past several decades, with younger Chinese moving to cities while leaving the lion's share of the older population in rural areas. This study explores how this structural change creates unique opportunities and challenges for older adults living in rural houses, which informs their everyday practices, the meanings of homes, and th…
  • The racial and cultural ecology of home and community-based services for diverse older adults. [Journal Article]
    J Aging Stud. 2022 Jun; 61:101023.Ezell JM, Alsmadi I, … Kaur A
  • As the overall U.S. population grows older and increasingly diverse, greater focus is needed on the various Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS), such as home health care, case management, meal delivery and preparation, and personal care, required to address the unique social and medical complexities of diverse older adults. Presently, however, there has been limited research on needs and bro…
  • Body talk and resilience: Aging men's experiences with mastectomy and prostatectomy. [Meta-Analysis]
    J Aging Stud. 2022 Jun; 61:101010.Thompson EH, Futterman AM
  • Men's experiences with gendered cancers hinge on at least two axes - their masculinities and their age. This article offers a thematic synthesis of the qualitative research on men living with breast cancer or prostate cancer. This is a qualitative meta-analysis assessing how masculinities and aging may jointly affect men's narratives post-mastectomy or post-prostatectomy. Of particular interest w…
  • Harnessing progress: Gender, sexuality, and positive self-perceptions of aging in midlife. [Journal Article]
    J Aging Stud. 2022 Jun; 61:101008.Barbee H
  • Drawing on interviews, this article analyzes how lesbians, gay men, straight women, and straight men construct positive views of aging during midlife, a life course period when negative perceptions of aging are salient. Interviewees engaged in harnessing progress-a process of crafting personal aging narratives that emphasize growth and improvement-which helped them to feel positively about their …
  • What's in a name? Address practices in Swedish residential care facilities. [Journal Article]
    J Aging Stud. 2022 Jun; 61:101007.Yazdanpanah M
  • Encountering residents living with dementia who come from diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds is a common aspect of everyday life in residential care homes. These facilities may have systems of address that differ from those used in residents' respective cultures of origin. Residents' forms of address are elements of identity established in accordance with their life histories. The aim of…
  • A secret(ly) aging man who has no time to die: The spectre of aging in the James Bond franchise. [Journal Article]
    J Aging Stud. 2022 Jun; 61:101006.Schwanebeck W
  • Aging is not a phenomenon commonly associated with the James Bond franchise, which relies on the successful template of a more agile and youthful hero. While Bond's adversaries used to be older than him (at least in the classic Bond movies of the 1960s and 1970s), with their deficient 'Otherness' underlining the idea that they are 'bad' and impotent patriarchs, more recent Bond films have turned …
  • 'I am not who I was': Old age and masculinity in Maximianus Etruscus' elegies. [Journal Article]
    J Aging Stud. 2022 Jun; 61:101038.Casamayor Mancisidor S
  • The Elegies of Maximianus Etruscus (sixth century CE) are first-person narratives in which the poet writes about the life cycle, making love and sex the building blocks of the story. Through his failed relationships with different women, Maximianus talks about the perception of his aging, especially the changes in his body and his eroticism, and the progressive loss of masculinity that to him com…
  • Transforming nursing home culture: Opinions of older people. A cross-sectional study in Belgium. [Journal Article]
    J Aging Stud. 2022 Jun; 61:101020.Muller A, Missotten P, Adam S
  • A culture change movement is taking place in some nursing homes: from the traditional biomedical to more person-centred and relational environments. However, knowledge of the institutional preferences of older people among the general population is limited. We focused on identifying what is important to older people when choosing a nursing home. We also wanted to determine which type of environme…
  • "I do those things to pass the time.": Active ageing during fourth age. [Journal Article]
    J Aging Stud. 2022 Jun; 61:101037.Kiuru H, Valokivi H
  • Active ageing is a dominant but disputed discourse in the field of ageing. Since it is usually associated with the third age, this article will focus on the active ageing of older adults who need care and services, who are known as the fourth agers. Our data consists of interviews collected from 16 older adults. We analysed the data through content analysis that was guided by the Active Ageing In…
  • Assisted eating in late-stage dementia: Intercorporeal interaction. [Journal Article]
    J Aging Stud. 2022 Jun; 61:101000.Hydén LC, Majlesi AR, Ekström A
  • In this article, we argue that investigating and learning about agentive abilities of people living with late-stage dementia requires a theoretical framework that focuses on the use of bodily resources in interpersonal interaction (i.e., intercorporeality) for performing joint activities rather than on solely the use of spoken language. Assisted eating, which involves people living with late-stag…
  • Age, subjectivity and the concept of subjective age: A critique. [Journal Article]
    J Aging Stud. 2022 Mar; 60:101001.Gilleard C
  • This paper presents a critique and proposes a reformulation of the concept of subjective age. It questions the nature of 'subjectivity' used in framing the concept and the consequent failure to distinguish between 'subjectivity' and 'self-identity'. I argue that age is not easily framed as a phenomenal (for-me) experience and that it is at least questionable whether aging or agedness possess what…
  • "Old age scares me": Exploring young adults' feelings about aging before and during COVID-19. [Journal Article]
    J Aging Stud. 2022 Mar; 60:100998.Anderson LB, Gettings PE
  • Negative messages about aging dominate public discourse about the COVID-19 pandemic as older adults have been classified as members of a "vulnerable" population due to their chronological age. To explore young adults' feelings about aging before and after the emergence of COVID-19, we collected 794 qualitative questionnaires during the fall of 2017 and another 463 responses during the fall of 202…
