Calls for Papers: Critical and Cultural Perspectives on Dementia Today

Palgrave Communications (https://www.nature.com/palcomms/ ) the open access journal from Palgrave Macmillan (part of Springer Nature),  which publishes research across the humanities and social sciences, is currently inviting article proposals and full papers for a research article collection (‘special issue’) on ‘Critical and Cultural Perspectives on Dementia Today’: https://www.nature.com/palcomms/for-authors/call-for-papers#dementia

This collection is being edited by: Dr Lucy Burke (Department of English, Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK)

Research indicates that dementia has overtaken cancer as the condition that people most fear. The notion of dementia as both a terrifying illness and a significant societal threat is the result of a complex conjunction of events and forces—from demographic shifts to the impotency of global Pharma in the development of medical interventions.

This research collection aims to bring together scholarship that thinks critically about dementia from new arts and humanities-based perspectives rather than more traditional quantitative, medical and scientific approaches.

Submit a research paper

This is a rolling article collection and as such submissions will be welcomed at any point up until 28 February 2020. To register interest prospective authors should submit a short article proposal (abstract summary) to the Editorial Office (palcomms@palgrave.com) in the first instance.

Palgrave Communications uses an Open Access model. Learn more about publication charges and discounts here:  https://www.nature.com/palcomms/about/openaccess
