Miranda Cichy 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. Dr Marian Krawczyk is a medical anthropologist, ethnographer, and Program Convenor for the End of Life Studies MSc Program at the University of Glasgow. Currently she is researching death doulas, how the microbiome shapes experiences of suffering at the end of life, and the history of palliative care. Miranda is a poet and PhD researcher at the University of Glasgow. Her research explores ways of storying the sixth mass extinction, with a focus on how taxidermy specimens generate encounters with anthropogenic bird extinction. Her poems have most recently been published in the weird folds: everyday poems from the anthropocene (Dostoyevsky Wannabe, 2020).
