MaoHui Deng is currently a PhD student at the University of Manchester. His research is interested in the ways in which dementia cinema – any cinematic narrative that touches on the theme of or includes a character living with dementia – can help further and/or complicate our understanding of time in cinema, gerontology and the wider society.
His research interests include time and temporality; the representation of age on screen; childhood and cinema; memory; and the films of Federico Fellini.
He is the postgraduate rep for the British Association of Film, Television and Screen Studies.
He wants to become a lecturer, hopefully. You can contact Mao at email@example.com You can follow him on Twitter at @dengmaohui.
