HCID Research Seminar: Making Parables of Care – Presenting creative responses to dementia care in comic book form

Friday 17 November 2017, 1:00-1:50 PM, A214

Dr Simon Grennan (University of Chester) will present at the HCID Research Seminar series at City, University of London (College Building, Room A214) tomorrow Friday 17 November at 1pm.

All welcome. If you are not a member of City, University of London and would like to join us for this seminar, please contact Katerina.Bourazeri@city.ac.uk for further details.

This seminar will discuss the practical rationale, theorisation and production of Parables of Care, a new 16-page colour comic book, which presents creative responses to dementia care, as told by carers, derived from a group of existing case studies available at http://carenshare.city.ac.uk.

Parables of Care is an impact project of the Centre for HCID, City, University of London, the University of Chester and Douglas College, Canada. Distributed as free hard copies and a free download to carers and those engaged in debates about dementia care, the book investigates the ways in which specific habits of reading comics can be activated in order to engage readers emotionally, as well as informatively, concerning the challenges of caring for people with dementia.
