New Community Member – CIRAC
We would like to welcome The Center for Interdisciplinary Research on Aging and Care (CIRAC) at the University of Graz in Austria as our community partner.
The Center for Interdisciplinary Research on Aging and Care (CIRAC) at the University of Graz in Austria was founded in 2020. The first of its kind in Austria, it was created to address socially relevant questions of aging, old age, and the organization of care (care structures and care cultures) from the perspectives of the humanities and social sciences. CIRAC’s fields of research include the analysis of cultural representations of age, care, and the life course, human-technology interaction, ecologies of care, ethics and politics, and medical humanities. Its mission is to contribute to the growing field of Aging and Care Studies by facilitating inter- and transdisciplinary collaboration.
