Fine will draft a book and several articles exploring the mobilization of older citizens for social justice. Drawing on research on aging and gerontology and based on extensive ethnographic observations and in-depth interviews, Fine’s project argues that the structural and cultural position of the elderly produces a distinctive form of organizing, creating resistance based on identity and experience.
