Masters in Heritage Studies

2020 what a year! Let’s hope that 2021 is a little bit easier. I have finished my Masters in Heritage Studies. It’s been quite a challenge and the coronavirus restrictions made it more difficult. On the brightside, I’ve met so many lovely people, university staff and fellow students. It has been a great experience. My dissertation ‘Doing heritage in Northumberland: the effect of long term relationships with heritage sites on wellbeing, identity and ontological security’ is about the benefits people gain from visiting a heritage site regularly over a period of years, how they enjoy taking their friends, imagine the lives of the people who lived at these sites long ago and how their visits have become ritualised, perhaps more like a pilgrimage than a day out. If you would like to know more about my research, please contact me I would be happy to discuss it. I will be giving a talk at the Heritage Experience Initiative Student Conference hosted by the University of Oslo on the 24 October. The Conference is a collaboration between the University of Oslo, the University of Gothenburg and Newcastle University.
