Lucie Ouimet

Adjunct professor

Lucie Ouimet holds a doctorate in educational sciences - health section - from the University of Paris 8, within the Laboratoire Interuniversitaire Expérience, Ressources culturelles, Éducation (EXPERICE). She questions the social and medical representations surrounding the concepts of aging and old age and also reflects on the social and medical representations of Alzheimer's disease and the people with the diagnosis. Professor Ouimet uses a biographical approach to the experiences of the people concerned: their experiences in such a context. Her thinking is rooted in a paradox that challenges her: that of our aging societies, at a time when life expectancy is reaching unprecedented levels, and their rejection of aging, and the ageism that prevails within it. She is concerned about the fragilization of subjects, the stigmatization of the elderly, and those suffering from Alzheimer's disease.
