Diana Teggi is a UKRI ESRC PhD candidate in Social Policy at the University of Bath, UK. She is a member of CDAS (Centre for Death and Society), the only research centre on the social aspects of mortality. Her doctorate explores end of life care (EOLC) policy and practice in the English care home sector. Using both quantitative and qualitative methods, her PhD thesis will provide the first national picture of EOLC in care homes after 20 years. It will also investigate and theorise issues of institutionalisation, dignity, and social reproduction in the care of the ageing-dying. Diana’s research on death expectation in ill old age features in Social Science and Medicine.
Before studying Social Policy at the University of Bath, Diana studied at the Humboldt University of Berlin, where she completed a MA in Cultural Studies with a focus on equality and diversity in the UK. Her Master's dissertation was an ethnography of a British nursing home, in which she examined residents' experiences and meanings of living with dying in long-term care. Diana first graduated with a BA in French and German Literature and Linguistics at the Universities of Bologna (IT), Mainz (DE), and Dijon (FR).
