  1. No aging in India : the uses of gerontology.

    Article - En anglais

    This paper develops a critique of international gerontology through an ethnography and analysis of gerontological practice in India.

    The central theme of Indian gerontology that of an imminent demographic and social explosion of an aging population who will tax the country's slender resources - misrepresents available data and fails to signify the experience of most Indian old people.

    Narrative and decontructive techniques are deployed to examine the language of crisis and the complex sources of this misrepresentation.
