European Network in Aging Studies


The European Network of Aging Studies (ENAS) aims at prompting a thorough reflection on the ways in which we experience age and aging, on the cultural meanings of the aging process, and on theories and policies on aging. ENAS facilitates sustainable international and multi-disciplinary collaboration among all researchers interested in the study of age and aging, most notably from the humanities and social sciences. Through fostering collaboration and networking, promoting interdisciplinary approaches, and supporting researchers at an early stage of their career, ENAS enhances intersectional visibility and stimulates conversations between academia and the general public. To this end, ENAS has developed:

The ENAS Mentorship program,
Bi-annual ENAS conferences,
Two ENAS Awards,
Online ENAS talks/seminars,
Summer Schools, and
The Aging Studies Book Series and Age, Culture and Humanities: An Interdisciplinary Journal (in collaboration with the North American Network in Aging Studies)

ENAS’s inaugural conference was held in Maastricht (NL), 6-9 October 2011
