A Cross-Cultural Case Study on the Inner Landscape of Elderly with Dementia

Exploring the Inner Landscape of an Elderly with Dementia utilizing Existential Approaches
by Nader Shabahangi, Ph.D — Pacific Institute and Patrick Fox, Ph.D — UCSF
by Tamar ShirinianThis project explores the “schism” within feminist thought through space so that global issues, which are pertinent in a postmodern and globalized world can be seen within various scales rather than as a teleological process of “women’s rights” and Western “feminist” issues. Within this work, I hope to discuss age, difference and ideology not just within a temporal platform, but within scales of time, space and self.
