JFTR Call for Papers: Theoretical Innovations in Family Gerontology

Submissions due Sept. 1, 2019


The Journal of Family Theory & Review (JFTR), published by NCFR, seeks manuscripts for a special issue to highlight recent theoretical innovations in family gerontology. Submissions are due by Sept. 1, 2019. 

Family gerontology is a type of social gerontology that focuses on the critical intersection between families and aging. People age in families, and families themselves age over time, and such development brings about different issues and dynamics for study. Meanwhile, family gerontology represents only a small portion of the work published in the family science field.
