CFP: Media & Senior Citizenship Panel

SCMS Conference (New Orleans, March 10-13)

In keeping with this year’s conference theme of “Media Citizenship,” this
panel aims to consider the relationship between media and cultural notions
of what it means to be a senior citizen.  This panel seeks to address the
particular relationship between aging and the media, be this in terms of
aging audiences or older demographics, aging media producers, aging stars,
or representations of aging in film, television or new media.  This is a
broad call for presentations that examine this important but
underrepresented topic.
