What kind of life events

or occurrences can change

a person from feeling

Going back to our word association themes of the term

‘old’ - when did conceptions of the elderly go from

Positive (wise) to negative (useless) in our society? Why?

In other words, when did we go from…

Ageism (Butler): refers to prejudice, discrimination, and hostilities

Directed towards elderly simply because of their age

With the beginning of industrialization, traditional respect for the elderly eroded

The meaning of ‘old’ was transformed – from usefulness to uselessness, from wisdom to foolishness, from an asset to a liability

Changing Role of the Elderly

age in other cultures
Age in other cultures:

The Tiwi tribe (top left) is a gerontocracy – a society run by the elderly – where older men control all wealth and power

To grow old in Eskimo society (bottom left) meant voluntary death. A person no longer able to pull his/her own weight was expected to simply go off somewhere and die

Formal Norms:

“In a house, a young woman is married to a man who works very hard. She feels neglected. When her husband has gone off on still another trip, the young wife meets an attractive man who invites her to his house. She spends the night with him and at dawn she leaves, knowing he husband is coming back. The bridge back home is blocked by a madman who kills everyone who comes near him. The young wife follows the river and meets a ferryman who can take her across safely, but he demands $50 dollars to take her to the other side. The young wife had no money. She runs back to her platonic friend who lives at house. She runs to him and explains her problem. The friend refuses to help; she has disillusioned her friend by her conduct. Her only choice is to go by the bridge in spite of the danger, and the madman kills her.”
