About Me

I am Research Assistant on the Whites Writing Whiteness: Letters, Domestic Figurations and Representations of Whiteness in South Africa from the 1770s to the 1970s project, a 4-year ESRC Professorial Fellowship awarded to Professor Liz Stanley. Part of my role includes managing the WWW project website, and co-convening the 'Lives & Letters' mailing list (formerly the NABS mailing list).

I have also just completed my PhD in Sociology, supervised by Liz Stanley and Donald MacKenzie. My research concerns the long-term development of the British funeral industry in terms of the histories of particular family funeral firms. It is also closely engaged with the work of Norbert Elias, and his concepts of figuration and sociogenesis in particular, which provides a direct link with my WWW work. 

   

Registration

I was awarded my PhD in Sociology from the University of Edinburgh in July, 2017.
