Figuring Age: Women, Bodies, Generations Book Description

Figuring Age engages the virtually invisible subject of older women inwestern culture. Like other markers of social difference, age is given meaning by aculture. Yet unlike gender and race, the subjects of age and aging have receivedlittle sustained attention. Central to Figuring Age is the crucial question of howwomen are aged by culture. How are older women represented in a visual culture thatis dominated by images of youth in television, film, and life performance? How dopsychoanalysis, rejuvenation therapy and hormone replacement therapy, the fashionsystem, cosmetic surgery, and midlife bodybuilding shape our views of aging as wellas of the older body itself? What is the "timing" of aging? To what extentis aging a culturally-induced trauma?
