    Abstract

    Facing death, reflecting on one’s legacies (material and ethical, personal and political) and the legal and interpersonal attempts to resolve or prevent inheritance conflicts, all bring to the fore constructions of memory and identity, intergenerational relations, and the complexities of doing and undoing family and kinship. Consequently, drawing attention to inheritance, keeping sight of it, and bringing it into play is a useful piece of the puzzle of ageing across a range of disciplines and this article provides an overview of some of the key themes in this emerging field.
