The international conference ’The Hands of time: Multiple Perspectives on Aging’ to be held 11-12 June 2015 is now open for submission of posters. The call closes on 1 March 2015.

A constellation of AIAS fellows and Aarhus University researchers are collaborating on the organisation of the two-days conference held at the AIAS.

Topic of the conference

Aging has been studied from a variety of perspectives, but often within separate academic disciplines.
This conference will bring together high-level researchers from around the world from different

Individual: Body’; ‘The Aging Human Individual: Mind’; ‘The Aging Society’ and ‘Aging and Culture’.
