Age at Work
Age at Work explores the myriad ways in which ‘age’ is at ‘work’ across society, organizations and workplaces, with special focus on organizations, their boundaries, and marginalizing processes around age and ageism in and across these spaces.
The book examines:
how society operates in and through age, and how this informs the very existence of organizations;
age-organization regimes, age-organization boundaries, and the relationship between organizations and death, and post-death
the importance of memory, forgetting and rememorizing in re-thinking the authors’ and others’ earlier work
tensions between seeing age in terms of later life and seeing age as pervasive social relations.
Enriched with insights from the authors’ lived experiences, Age at Work is a major and timely intervention in studies of age, work, care and organizations. Ideal for students of Sociology, Organizations and Management, Social Policy, Gerontology, Health and Social Care, and Social Work.
