Looking for interview participants for my PhD research

Dear community,

My name is Alex and I am a PhD student at the University of Birmingham in the UK. I am looking for people who may be willing to participate in an interview My research looks into three heritage sites, which all use human bodies (or body parts) as a main attraction. Specific sites of interest include the so-called ‘bone shrines’ (the Ossuaries), which currently operate as major tourist attractions: Capuchin Catacombs of Palermo (Catacombe dei Cappuccini, Italy), Paris Catacombs (Paris, France) and Sedlec Ossuary ‘The Bone Church’ (Kutna Hora, Czech Republic). In my research I am looking into different ways how human body is used by the sites and ultimately turned into a commodity.

To be able to participate in an interview, you need to have visited at least one of the above tourism attractions and have a free hour for an interview! If you need more information about interviews, please feel free to message me or email on axa1306@student.bham.ac.uk.

If you are happy to participate, drop me a message or an email!

Best wishes,
