Based on the concept of ‘aging’ as a cultural construct according to Margaret Gullette, and the understanding of ‘care’ as form of living together interdependently in the sense of Joan Tronto, this doctoral symposium brings together upcoming scholars in the field of Aging and Care, and provides a platform to discuss aspects of their dissertations and ongoing bodies of work. The Age and Care Research Group Graz appreciates the academic involvement of emerging scholars and supports the interdisciplinary exchange on a global scale. Thus, this symposium offers its participants a space that allows for an interdisciplinary discussion and supports the foundation of a global pre-doctoral network at an early career stage. The symposium is supported by the Center for Interdisciplinary Research on Aging and Care (CIRAC) and the Research Network “Heterogenität und Kohäsion” (Heterogeneity and Cohesion).
