Aging in Place: Challenges and Prospects
with Jessica Robbins, Annette Leibing, Aaron Seaman, and Agnes Vallejos
Support provided by the Ethel-Jane Westfeldt Bunting Foundation

From home modifications to remote care-giving technologies, what is the future of aging in place? Defined by a desire to live independently in a home or community, aging in place has historic roots across cultures, but changing practices and varying economic circumstances, both in the US and abroad, have given rise to a new world of aging in the 21st century. In this extended summer salon, four experts share insights and provide tangible examples of aging in place and ask what anthropology can teach us about the influence of social differences—race, ethnicity, class, and gender—on aging populations and the communities that support them.

Jessica Robbins is Assistant Professor, Anthropology, Wayne State University;

Annette Leibing is Professor, Medical Anthropology, Université de Montréal;

Aaron Seaman is Associate of Internal Medicine and General Internal Medicine, Carver College of Medicine, University of Iowa;

Agnes Vallejos is Social Services Division Manager, Department of Senior Affairs, City of Albuquerque.

Historic Churches as Symbols and the Meanings of Restoration

Author Frank Graziano shares research on the world of New Mexico’s historic stone and adobe churches and the role these structures play in communities today. Based on interpretive ethnographic fieldwork, his work demonstrates how a few committed mayordomos (church caretakers) or entire communities rallying around restoration efforts can influence the future of culturally relevant historic locations.

Frank Graziano is John D. MacArthur Professor of Hispanic Studies, Emeritus, Connecticut College and author of Historic Churches of New Mexico Today.


Free to SAR members with priority registration given at the Chaco level and higher. If you are not a member at this level and would like to join or upgrade membership to participate, please join here. Limited to 25 people.

Where Wind Works: Documenting US and European Wind Turbines and Correlating Changes to the Landscape

Since 2011, photographer Bryan Steiff has tracked developments and uses of energy-generating wind turbines. From small applications and individual residential use to massive commercial wind farms, visualizing the current state of wind-use invites a dialogue around practicality, community impacts, environmental concerns, and political implications of this particular energy source.

Steiff says, “these dramatic symbols of renewable resources and green technology vividly evidence the hand of man on the landscape in a way not seen since the massive World War II infrastructure development in American and rebuilding of post-war Europe.”

Bryan Steiff is a photographer and author. Learn more about his Wind series here.
