ADLab Webinar: Dear future self with dementia. Articulating inclusive futures through letter writing (Annelieke Driessen, London)

Annelieke Driessen will give a talk entitled "Dear future self with dementia. Articulating inclusive futures through letter writing".

Time and place: October 1, 2021 1:15 PM–2:30 PM CET, Zoom Webinar



- coming soon-



Annelieke Driessen is assistant professor in medical anthropology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. In her PhD she ethnographically explored how institutional care practices in the Netherlands may give rise to ‘interesting subject positions’ for people with dementia, namely those that diverged from the dominant imaginary of what it is like to live with advanced dementia. In this webinar, Annelieke presents on her work that seeks to extend her doctoral work by asking people to imagine and speculate about a possible future for themselves with dementia by writing their future self a letter. The project seeks to challenge ageist and ableist assumptions, and to contribute to the articulation, and realisation, of inclusive futures.

For more information on the Dementia Letter project, go to the project website, read the blog Annelieke wrote on Disruptive inequalities, or follow Annelieke on twitter @Annelie3ssen.


The lecture will be followed by a panel discussion. More info coming soon.
