Håkan Jönson and Kiran Maini Gerhardsson are two of twenty-two authors from Lund University who will present their books at this year's book fair, Bokmässan, in Gothenburg - in Lund's digital stand - on Thursday 23 September.


Håkans Jönsson's book is entitled "Perspektiv på ålderism – diskriminerar yngre sig själva i framtiden?" and Kiran Maini Gerhardsson's book, which is about how residents experience and use of their window openings, is entitled "Vad jag tänker på när jag tänker på fönster".

Perspektiv på ålderism – diskriminerar yngre sig själva i framtiden? 
Ageism is about prejudice and discrimination against people based on age, usually directed at the elderly. It can be about everything from discrimination in the labor market to notions that the elderly lack sexuality.
In a recent anthology, a number of Swedish researchers put the different expressions and aspects of ageism in critical light.

Håkan Jönson is a professor at the School of Social Work and researches the elderly and elderly care.

Vad jag tänker på när jag tänker på fönster
Which window etiquette applies where you live? Constantly drawn blinds or open curtains? When can you look in and out? Are there potted plants, a lamp and other objects in the window?

Kiran Maini Gerhardsson, architect and researcher, talks about how residents experience and use their window openings.
