Geriatric Sexpot: Sneak Peek of our ENAS Panel

April 7, 2017

Aging Activisms will be facilitating a panel and the European Network in Aging Studies Conference in Graz, Austria this April! The panel is entitled Aging Activisms: Critical Reflections on Activist Aging Research from Canada, the United States, and Mexico, and is facilitated by May Chazan.


One of the panelists, Marlene Goldman, is discussing Performance and Bodies: Sexperts versus the Raging Grannies. Marlene will discuss how the Raging Grannies resist compulsory (hetero)sexuality, and reclaim their bodily and sexual autonomy. To spice up the traditional conference format, Marlene's presentation will also feature this media capsule of the Peterborough Raging Grannies singing their tune Geriatric Sexpot!
