Postgraduate Journal of Women, Ageing and Media (PGWAM)

The Postgraduate Journal of Women, Ageing and Media (PGWAM) is a rigorous, peer-reviewed journal which welcomes submissions from postgraduate students and early career researchers working in the fields of ageing studies, media studies, cultural gerontology, and other related disciplines. Run by postgraduates with support from more experienced academics, the journal aims to make ‘thinking with age’ a key lens from which to approach research focussed on women, ageing and the media (film, television, screen media, popular music, advertising radio and the press). Submitting work to PGWAM is an important opportunity to be published in a peer-reviewed journal with rigorous academic standards but which also provides an encouraging and supportive space for postgraduates and early career researchers to develop their work and their professional academic skills.
