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 lectures!

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.
