Description

This online seminar will explore narratives of dementia and ageing during the current global pandemic. We understand narrative very broadly here (as discourse and cultural narrative) and our aim is to consider the ways in which those living with dementia and those who care for them are being affected by both the experience of the pandemic and the narratives that are driving responses to it.
