Attention to the geographies of age is becoming increasingly important, given that large proportions of Western populations are aging. Qualitative approaches to aging in geography, which examine it as a socially constructed element of identity, have emerged only since the mid-1990s or so and are relatively new. While this bibliography is titled “Geographies of Age,” research in this area is incredibly interdisciplinary in character. Consequently, articles, books, and book chapters from a range of disciplines that have relevance to the spatial and environmental facets of aging are discussed.
