End of Life Studies
I am a Graduate Teaching Assistant on the University of Glasgow MSc End of Life Studies course Cultural Representations of Death and Dying. This course examines how death and dying have been represented in popular culture, visual arts and literature. Students are introduced to methods of visual and literary analysis and learn to identify and critique specific cultural tropes used to represent the end of life. I facilitate weekly seminars and assist with marking and course communications.
This Royal Society of Edinburgh-funded Network is called COVID as Catalyst for Writing and Discussing Death, Dying and Grief through Objects, Diaries and Collective Archives.The Network is developing and supporting 30 Scotland-based writers from across disciplines and genres to write and publish powerful, accessible work. I’m participating in the project as a Research Assistant and am developing a Network website to serve as an archive and resource.
