The Research Group “Literature and Science” invites scholars of literature, the arts and the medical humanities, as well as philosophers, cultural historians, historians of religion, sociologists and anthropologists to explore the symbolic aspects of ageing and later life in social, cultural and personal contexts. Drawing upon interdisciplinary studies of literature and medicine, we believe an approach to old age rooted in the humanities, could interact with gerontology and pursue goals that are significant not only for gerontology’s interest groups.
