Georgina Robinso (Postgrad Rep)

Georgina Robinson is a PhD student within the Department of Theology and Religion and Centre for Death and Life Studies at Durham University, UK. Her research focuses on the prospective introduction of resomation as a funerary option in the United Kingdom, studying how the process may become accepted and normalised in the future, consolidating cultural, religious, and non-religious beliefs about life, death, and funerals. Georgina has a Master of Arts in Religion and Society and Bachelor of Arts in Theology and Religion, both awarded by Durham University. Her interest in death studies began to blossom in the final year of her undergraduate degree and became consolidated as a primary research interest during her masters degree. Georgina began her Theology PhD, supervised by Professor Douglas Davies and Professor Mathew Guest, in October 2020. Georgina is also a Teaching Assistant at Durham University, primarily leading seminars for undergraduate modules including 'Emotion, Identity and Religion', 'Death, Ritual and Belief', and 'Worldview, Faith and Identity'. She has also given a guest lecture for 'Sects, Prophets and Gurus', based on the work of her undergraduate dissertation. As the PGR Representative of the ASDS, Georgina hopes to foster an encouraging and supportive postgraduate community which is accessible to all interested.
