"Ending Ageism, or How Not to Shoot Old People" with Margaret Morganroth Gullette

When: Sunday, March 15, 2020, 11:00 am to 1:30 pm
Where: Community Church of Boston • 565 Boylston Street • 2nd fl. • Boston

As people live longer lives, today’s great demotions of older people cut deeper into their self-worth and human relations, beyond the reach of law or public policy. Morganroth Gullette confronts the offenders: the ways people aging past midlife are portrayed in the media, by adult offspring; the aesthetics and politics of representation in photography, film, and theater; and the incitement to commit suicide for those with early signs of “dementia.”
