Acting Their Age: Women, Ageing & Popular Cinema

I’m speaking at this symposium at Newcastle University in May 2012. The event will look at women and ageing in Hollywood and is concerned with how cinema has responded to and historically dealt with older women both off and on screen. My paper is focussed on Meryl Streep as the ‘acceptable’ face of ageing in Hollywood.  http://actingtheirage.tumblr.com/programme
