Chiasm, the intersection of time, embodiment, and identity

(p.167) Eight Chiasm, the intersection of time, embodiment, and identity
Baby Boomers

Policy Press

‘Chiasm: the intersection of time, embodiment, and identity,’ defines the chiasm or intersection of body/embodiment, time, and identity as seen through the experience of the postwar cohort. The interrelationships of the past, present, and future imaginings merge to delineate the boundaries of ageing-embodied identity. Although the experience of this generation starkly exemplifies this chiasm, it is not a singular experience. The specificity of the cohort’s defining experiences and the influence of those experiences on their current notions of ageing, and the universality of ageing, are explored.

Keywords:   chiasm, embodiment, time, identity, postwar, ageing, interrelationships
