Body and technology, subjectivity and normativity: screening for dementia

How is the dementia screening practice experienced by the screened subjects? How are conceptions of health, disease, normality and risk expressed or enacted within these screenings? Which role does technology play in the expression of such conceptions?

Current research

Early-stage diagnosis for dementia has been proclaimed a medical and social priority, evoking a discussion about the desirability of selective screening for dementia. The PhD project combines feminist phenomenology of medicine with science and technology studies to examine the co-emergence of subjects, normativity and agency in the screening process. It engages with the individual, situated, experienced bodily subject by combining philosophical and empirical work.

Previous research

Previous research concerned the ethics of assistive technologies; the interplay between disability studies, philosophy of technology, and design ethics; social, ethical and legal aspects of wearable robotics; and ethics assessment in research and innovation.
