Personal Profile

Emma is currently an MA student in Sociology. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Sociology and Anthropology from Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador. Her research is interested in further expanding Dr. van den Scott’s concept of “eulogy work” by examining how ex-Youtubers perform their social death from the platform and how they make meaning out of leaving the Internet.

Emma strives to be intersectionally feminist in all aspects of her life. This impacts her personal life as well as her research conduct- reflexivity and kindness are tenets of her methodology.
