Public Lecture on Aliceheimer’s: Comics, Medicine, and Healing Dementia at the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Trinity College Dublin
Panel Member at the Bealtaine Discssion. Taking inspiration from Damien Hirst’s iconic Shark in formaldehyde Sculpture The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living (1991), this multidisciplinary discussion will explore how we conceive, imagine, understand, process and articulate the difficult subject of death and dying. Through the diverse eyes of artists, academics and medics, as well as personal testimony, we hope to examine and shed light on our peculiar capacities, perceptions, taboos, fetishes, fears and even shame around conversations on death.
