How are individual and social ideas of late-onset dementia shaped and negotiated in film, literature, the arts, and the media? And how can the symbolic forms provided by popular culture be adopted and transformed by those affected in order to express their own perspectives? This international and interdisciplinary volume summarizes central current research trends and opens new theoretical and empirical perspectives on dementia in popular culture. It includes contributions by internationally renowned scholars from the humanities, social and cultural gerontology, age(ing) studies, cultural studies, philosophy, and bioethics. Contributions by Lucy Burke, Marlene Goldman, Annette Leibing and others.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The volume provides pieces of exciting new research on the topic, and will probably spark much follow-up. It looks back into the history of media coverage concerning dementia, it gives an insight into what is happening at the moment, and it raises many reasoned questions for the future. Besides, it not only has a normative aspect to it, but strongly advocates for the rights of people with dementia. This makes it a very useful and productive groundwork for scholars and activists alike." Susanne K. Christ, KULT_online, 46 (2016)
