The section of life situations and aging
The Professorship of Life Situations and Ageing correlates with the University of Kassel’s fundamental aspiration to pursue research on key issues facing humankind in the future. In comparison with other professorships of gerontology at universities in Germany, it emphasizes the significance of social inequality for ageing societies.
Demographic development and structural changes in ageing result in complex questions. These frequently affect multiple academic disciplines. For this reason, we regard “age(FG ing)” as an interdisciplinary crosscutting topic.
