Course Proposals

Let’s Talk About Death! Pop Culture, the Macabre and Death

  • Syllabus
    • From my experience blogging and doing public engagement, I am proposing a course that uses pop culture as a way to engage students in discussions about death, diversity, and mortuary archaeology.

Archaeology of Death

  • Syllabus
    • As part of my dissertation writing, I have done extensive research on mortuary archaeology broadly, including theory and method, and created an extensive 75-source bibliography for my comprehensive exams- this course stems from that experience.
