Jennifer Wigglesworth

Jennifer Wigglesworth, PhD candidate, Kinesiology & Health Studies (Sociocultural Stream), supervised by Dr Mary Louise Adams.

Topics: Discussing her experiences at the Lake Shift Writing Retreats in Summers 2016 and 2017

Overview: I wrote some journal entries from my experiences at the Lake Shift - the seminars; meeting the Dean at her cabin; the excellent spaces for writing (my favourite being the library); cabin life and meeting other grad students from across Ontario; enjoying the lake, stars, campfires, cycling trails, volleyball court, the Opinicon resort and bocce ball. It was a great space for me to clear my head and write my proposal (Summer 2016), and it is the place where I first opened my dissertation file to begin writing my Introduction and research motivations (Summer 2017).

Topics: Leadership, mental health, work-family spillover

Katie Hunt

Katie Hunt, PhD candidate, English Language & Literature, supervised by Dr Chris Fanning.

Topics: Insomnia in Romantic culture and poetry 

Overview: During the Romantic period in Britain (~1780-1830), a series of scientific advancements facilitated an important shift in the way many disorders of the mind and body were conceptualized. My doctoral research addresses how this shift influenced the ways sleeplessness was theorized both in terms of its general taxonomy and at the level of the individual sufferer.
