Authors: Marjorie Silverman + Alexandre Baril

Using theoretical tools from trans studies and disability/crip studies, Marjorie Silverman and Alexandre Baril reconceptualise the self in the context of dementia. The article, published in Journal of Aging Studies, illustrates that most dementia discourse, scholarship and intervention emphasises a maintenance of the pre-dementia self.
