Ageing, men and social relations: New perspectives on masculinities and men's social connections in later life

Paul Willis (Editor), Ilkka Pietilä (Editor), Marjaana Seppänen (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology or special issueScientificpeer-review


While there has been a gradual increase in scholarship on men, ageing and masculinities, little attention has been paid to the social relations of men in later life and the implications for enhancing their social wellbeing and counteracting ageist discourse. Bringing together scholars in social gerontology and the social sciences from across Global North and South nations, this collection fills the gaps in key texts by foregrounding older men’s experiences. It provides new perspectives across the intersections of old age, ethnicities, class and sexual and gender identity, paying particular attention to older men from seldom heard or marginalised groups.
