Political Demography: the next great challenge for gerontology?

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited or keynote talk at national or international conference


In this paper I make the case for gerontologists on both sides of the Atlantic to take account of the representation of older people in the media as strategic, self-interested voters. I use the example of media coverage of older voters and Brexit to make the case.
