History, Memory and Imagination: The Impact of Dementia on Artistic Expression in Contemporary Germany.

My research project focuses on the representation of dementia and old-age memory on cultural identity in contemporary Germany. By focusing on literature produced by German authors since 2000, I will consider the ethical and cultural implications of losing first hand testimony of the National Socialist past, and how ‘third generation’ authors understand the complex historical foundations of their German heritage.
