Diane Buie(Doctoral Studentship Holder)

Diane graduated from Sunderland University with a BA (Hons.) English: First Class. Following this, she pursued an MA in English Literature: Restoration to Romanticism, also at Sunderland University, and was awarded a distinction in 2006. Over the next three years she will be based mainly at Sunderland, working under the preliminary title, 'Depression and the Idle Lifestyle.' The main aim of her research will be to explore how the lifestyle choices a person made in the eighteenth century may have had a detrimental effect on their mental health. In particular she will be interested in people's perceptions of and attitudes towards 'idleness'.
