More about Melanie

Melanie’s research interests are broad, but she is drawn to people’s everyday practices and cultures, particularly in the contexts of ageing, material culture, alcohol, transitions during the life course, lived experiences of illness, and death and dying. While her research to date has been largely interdisciplinary, her perspectives are most strongly influenced by approaches drawn from the fields of anthropology, sociology, ethnology and folklore. Melanie uses qualitative methods, and she is particularly interested in ethnographic research.
