I’m currently writing up my PhD on dementia representations at the University of Nottingham. In it, I work with 51 individuals who are affected by dementia, either through having a diagnosis, or being a carer, supporter or family/friend of someone who does.

Dementia is certainly a growing social concern, and is increasingly discussed and portrayed in newspapers, government speeches, policy documents, films, books and more.
