73. Growing old in a more-than human world: Materialities of care and
interspecies entanglements

Nete Schwennesen, Copenhagen University;

Daniel Lopez Gomez, Universitat Oberta de Catalunya;

Joanna Latimer, SATSU, University of York

This panel calls for papers with an interest in exploring the recent
‘post-humanist turn’ within ageing studies (Andrews & Duff 2019). While
age studies has privileged anthropocentric visions of agency, usually as a
way to contest the deficit-based visions of later life in care, recent
interest has grown around studying how late life is shaped and emerge
through more-than-human ecologies which involves digital technologies,
robots, architectures, plants, landscapes, animals, music, etc. At the same
time, new theoretical orientations such as new materialism,
material-semiotics, assemblage theory, non-representational theory, and
affect theory have come to inform studies on later life about the need to
explore more-than-human entanglements in aging, and the configuration of
later life. In this panel, we invite papers with an interest in exploring
how later life is configured through more-than-human entanglements.

We welcome theoretical and/or empirical papers exploring themes including,
but not limited to:

- What does ageing becomes when ageing is seen as a stage of
becoming-with more-than-humans?
- How does ‘post-human’ theories challenge human-centric notions of
- How does imaginative visions of eldercare shape future entanglements
of late life and more—than-humans?
- What are the new opportunities for intervention and experimentation,
that opens up, when we think about later life as constituted through
more-than-human entanglements?
