Why Ageing is More Important than Being Old
Understanding the Elderly in a Mediatized World

Thus, constituting generations as birth cohorts and in conjunction with specific media technologies loses explanatory value, as also potential generations multiply in this regard and last for shorter intervals (for a detailed critique Bolin 2016 : 32–34, Hart-Brinson et al. 2016 ).
