About Laura Carstensen's seminar: Discussions about aging underway in the nation and around kitchen tables are typically fraught with concern. However, many of the challenges stem from a fundamental mismatch between the length of the lives we are living and the social norms and cultural institutions that guide us through life. In this talk, I provide a birds-eye view of longevity, the role that culture played in extending life expectancy, and offer a blueprint for new map of life that can better support century-long lives.
