The MASCAGE seminar series presents ongoing research within the European research consortium MASCAGE, a project which analyses social constructions of ageing masculinities and/through their cultural representations in contemporary European literatures and cinemas. During three events in the spring of 2021, researchers from the six national teams of MASCAGE, Austria, Ireland, Estonia, Israel, Spain and Sweden, will present studies on ageing and masculinity in different regional contexts of Europe.
MASCAGE is funded by a grant from ERA Gender Net Plus. The series is co-organised with the Department of Gender Studies, Södertörn University, the Research Group on Critical Studies of Men and Masculinities, Örebro University and the Research School on Successful ageing, Örebro University.
