Henrik Hvenegaard to be co-editing ‘Anthropology and aging’
From December 2019 Assistant professor Henrik Hvenegaard Mikkelsen will be co-editing the international journal ‘Anthropology and Aging' .
The journal is committed to advances in knowledge and understanding of the human condition across the life course.
- Aging has become one of the major research areas of anthropology, especially in Denmark. But there are many aspects of aging that remains largely unexplored and this makes this an extremely interesting field with a huge potential. While, of course, health continues to be an important issue, I hope to see papers of a more experimental nature that try to tackle and raise theoretical questions through the scope of aging. I would also love to see a larger focus beyond the Western hemisphere, Henrik Hvenegaard says.
