Talks, Papers and Lectures

When I’m not writing for Burials and Beyond, I lecture around the UK on a whole manner of macabre topics. You can book me for a talk or pop along to any of my public events!

I also occasionally deliver papers at academic conferences. While these are a little more serious and a little less heavy on the puns and costumes, I’ll be sure to attach any upcoming dates.

If you have any questions about upcoming dates or want to book me to talk at your event, please contact me via email at burialsandbeyond@gmail.com or via my Facebook page HERE.
