Transnational Aging and Reconfigurations of Kin-Work

“These thought-provoking, poetic, critical, nuanced, heartbreaking, and diverse accounts of older people’s complex roles in transnational 'kin-work’ provide an important and understudied contribution to the wider field of Aging Studies.”

--Annette Leibing, professor of medical anthropology at the Université de Montréal


“This book is bursting with engaging ethnographic and theoretical contributions from across the world and life course. It’s indisputable: aging and kin-work are critical frames for understanding transnational connections, disruptions, and meaning-making in today’s precarious global economy.”

--Caitrin Lynch, author of Retirement on the Line: Age, Work, and Value in an American Factory
