Critical approaches in dementia studies in the pandemic and post-pandemic

Welcome to the first in a series of online panel discussions hosted by the Critical Dementia Network (CDN). Following two workshops in Stockholm and Edinburgh our activities have now moved online. In this session, our Canadian panel – Dr Alisa Grigorovich, Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, Dr Pia Kontos, University of Toronto, Dr Annette Leibing, University of Montreal, Dr Wendy Hulko, Thomson Rivers University and Dr Sally Chivers, Trent University – discuss critical perspectives on COVID-19 and dementia.

You can view the video of the discussions below and if you have any questions or comments please add these to the comments section at the bottom of the page and we will do our best to respond or pass your question on to the relevant panel member. If you are not logged in to the website, you can still submit a comment but it will need to be approved before being published.

If you are interested in contributing to a developing critical approach to dementia studies and research, then you are welcome to join the network, we ask you for a picture of yourself and a brief bio – and this can be submitted via the network sign-up page.

We would like to say a big thank you to our panel members for such thought-provoking and critical reflections on the current pandemic and its implications for dementia policy, practice and research.

Our next panel session will be advertised to CDN members after the summer.
