Another new book by Boyd Davis

Wednesday, August 10, 2022

Congratulations to Boyd Davis, Professor Emerita, on the publication of another edited volume! The chapters in this book explore discourses surrounding the aging population, those who assist them, their families, and the institutions/organizations that offer services to them. These chapters pay close attention to the linguistic, social, economic and ethical aspects regarding seniors and adopt varied theoretical perspectives and analytic methods. Given the varied approaches developed in the separate chapters, the collection as a whole is able to attend to the complexity inherent in discourses of and about seniors.
