1. Project Title:  "How Not To Shoot Old People" Book on Ageism   Scholar: Margaret Gullette


1. Project Title:  "How Not To Shoot Old People" Book on Ageism
Scholar: Margaret Gullette

I will be researching the last three chapters of my next book, the fifth book in age studies that I have written. The chapters are: The Elder Hostile: Debating Ageism in the College Classroom (combatting ageism on the Internet and among young people through a college composition assignment); Advertisements for Our Scared New World Fantasies of Euthanasia and Pre-emptive Suicide (a movie, a play, a novel, and a lot of media stories make the case that end-of-life situations--especially Alzheimer's-- have gotten so terrifying that suicide or murder are preferred); and Redress: Overcoming Trauma, Repairing Relationships, Healing  Society (milestones of anti-ageist thinking, feeling, and acting).

 The Partner will first read Chapter One and discuss it with me, to make sure s/he understands the concepts and aims of the book. The Partner will be doing research on two or three well-defined topics/ issues, creating bibliographies, and helping with checking references and end-notes.   They will also edit a wikipedia entry.
