Research interests

Diana Teggi is a UKRI ESRC PhD candidate in Social Policy at the University of Bath, UK. Diana’s doctorate explores end of life care (EOLC) practice in the English care home sector. Employing a mixed-methods design, her thesis constitutes the first substantial study of EOLC in British care homes after 20 years. Building on the work of Michel Foucault and feminist social reproduction theory, Diana’s thesis conceptualises how care homes govern residents’ dying, shape carers’ work, and uphold a specific ideology of the good death. Diana’s research 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 inequalities and diversity in the UK. Her Master's dissertation was an ethnography of a British nursing home, where she investigated residents' experiences and meanings of living with dying. Diana first graduated with a BA in French and German Literature and Linguistics at the Universities of Bologna (IT), Mainz (DE), and Dijon (FR).
