Event description

The SGSAH Alumni talk is your chance to hear from one of our alumni who has completed their PhD and are embarking on their post-doctoral career.
The inagural alumni talk is from Dr Rebecca Crowther, a transdisciplinary, ethnographic, social researcher who will share her research journey with us.
Rebecca is a transdisciplinary ethnographic researcher working between, across and beyond disciplines within the arts, humanities and social sciences. Her research interests lie in the phenomenological experience of natural landscapes.
Rebecca completed her PhD at the University of Edinburgh having worked across Edinburgh College of Art and The School of Social Anthropology. She published her first book Wellbeing and Self Transformation in Natural Landscapes (Palgrave/ Macmillan), based on her PhD research at the end of 2018, the same year that she passed her viva examination. This book explores how natural landscapes are linked to positive mental wellbeing.
Rebecca is now working on her post-doctoral research. Her new research project, Women in Dark Rural Landscapes: Vulnerability and the Self, aims to decipher in what ways cultural and personal narratives act as a lens through which women in Scotland encounter and experience darkness and other material objects within rural excursions at night. Rebecca is also currently working as a policy officer, gaining social policy experience with the Equality Network in Edinburgh.

Her book is available in hardback and for download online at Palgrave.com, Amazon, Waterstones and Blackwells.
