This snapshot focuses on a doctoral study at the University of Manchester which is situated within a larger ESRC funded study, ‘The Hair and Care Project’, which seeks to explore the relationship between appearance and personal identity for people with dementia. The doctoral study accesses data from this wider study (http://www.esrc.ac.uk/my-esrc/grants/RES-061-25-0484/read). The snapshot presents male shaving as a case example of bodywork in dementia care and argues that male shaving could be a revealing lens through which to explore masculinity and embodiment in dementia care.
