Ageing Women in Literature and Visual Culture : Reflections, Refractions, Reimaginings, Hardback Book

Ageing Women in Literature and Visual Culture : Reflections, Refractions, Reimaginings Hardback

Edited by Cathy McGlynn, Margaret O'Neill, Michaela Schrage-Fruh

Description

This timely collection engages with representations of women and ageing in literature and visual culture.

Acknowledging that cultural conceptions of ageing are constructed and challenged across a variety of media and genres, the editors bring together experts in literature and visual culture to foster a dialogue across disciplines.

Exploring the process of ageing in its cultural reflections, refractions and reimaginings, the contributors to Ageing Women in Literature and Visual Culture analyse how artists, writers, directors and performers challenge, and in some cases reaffirm, cultural constructions of ageing women, as well as give voice to ageing women's subjectivities.

The book concludes with an afterword by Germaine Greer which suggests possible avenues for future research.
