Abstract: The editors introduce the special issue by offering a contextualisation for approaching both ‘narrative’ and the intersection of ‘old age and gender’ at this present moment, and a consideration of the implications of the intervention with reference to intellectual and methodological developments within age studies. They also reflect on the value of a multi-disciplinary approach and consider the significance of intersectionality for analysing age, ageing and ageism. The second half introduces the format of the issue and each article.

Keywords: Old age, gender, ageing, narratives, age studies, multi-disciplinary
