Dublin PubhD 3 – Archaeological Semantic Web, Economics of Death, and Eco-horror

Our third event with three more PhD students presenting their research in 10 minutes.

Frank Lynam is a PhD candidate in the Classics department of Trinity College Dublin and is also a member of the Digital Arts and Humanities PhD programme. His doctoral research, Rise of the Machines: finding meaning on the archaeological Semantic Web, considers how archaeologists might benefit from a more interlinked discipline brought about by the use of Linked Open Data and Semantic Web techniques and methodologies.

Patrick Moore is a recent PhD graduate who’s project was titled: Counting the time lived or the time left? Age, Proximity to Death and Prescription Expenditures. I provided evidence to show that how close an individual is to dying is a more important driver of their expenditure on medications rather than how old they are. Using population cohorts in Ireland and New Zealand, with data on 620,000 individuals.

Emily Bourke is a PhD candidate in the School of English at Trinity College Dublin. Her research traces the origins and development of eco-horror as a prominent theme in American popular culture, with a particular focus on the period from 1945 to the present.
