About this event

‘I will bring video recordings of naturally occurring interaction between a person with dementia (pwd) and his primary nurse. The interaction takes place during a daily home visit, in which the nurse prepares dinner for the pwd. In the data session, we will investigate how the person with dementia and his interlocutor, orient to and manage (lack of) knowledge and forgetfulness in interaction. The data is from an ongoing study on language and communication in multilingual speakers with dementia in Norway.’
