Joe Wood is part of a group of poets, writers, and researchers within the School of Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Glasgow, including the End-of-Life Studies Group and Critical Environmental Studies. Our methods of inquiry borrow from anthropology, social theory, literary ecocriticism, history and philosophy. Joe is a PhD researcher interested in the way that people express their experiences of pain, death, dying and grief. His project focuses on the legacy of the idea of ‘total pain’ as used by the hospice pioneer Cicely Saunders and its relation to – among other things – holism, time, narrative, touch, and silence.
