DDD11 Early Career Scholar Event
At the 11th International Death, Dying and Disposal Conference (DDD11) hosted by the Open University (5th-8th Sept 2013), an Early Career Scholar event was led by Shelia Harper and Julie Ellis. The event was kindly sponsored by ASDS.
Three experienced academics from the field of Death Studies were invited to informally present on three key themes affecting early career death studies scholars. Professor Jenny Hockey on having a successful career in Death Studies; Dr Carol Komoromy on Death Studies and dealing with the media and Professor George Dickinson on providing an international perspective on Death Studies.
These presentations were followed by the opportunity for attendees to chat with the speakers about these key themes in small group discussion. You can read summaries of this group discussion in the document here and also listen to the audio recording of the speakers presenting at the event below.
