Jason Alley: “When You’re 64: Experimental Ethnography and San Francisco’s Young-Old” – October 25, 2016

2016/17 CSREG Faculty Colloquium

Abstract.  Although often identified with its young and bohemian denizens, San Francisco is home to the largest urban concentration of older adults in the state of California.  For many residents migration to retirement communities is either financially out of reach or socially undesirable, creating a new set of realities whereby seniors opt to “age in place.”  Based on ethnographic fieldwork with a coalition of organizations working on queer aging and a group of seniors forming a nascent care network amongst themselves, I examine the experimental endeavors being pursued by welfare workers and ordinary residents alike.
