Emily Kelly, PhD

Our esteemed colleague, Dr. Emily Kelly, currently on sabbatical, has authored many publications on research into the survival of consciousness post mortem. She was a close colleague of our founder Dr. Ian Stevenson, and has been a researcher at UVA Division of Perceptual Studies for over forty years. Dr. Kelly has developed a self-paced reading curriculum for those wanting to become more familiar with the scope and the background of the research being conducted at the Division of Perceptual Studies.

The following syllabus is intended to provide the framework for a self-directed course of reading about research on the question of survival of consciousness after death, the primary focus of research at the Division of Perceptual Studies, University of Virginia, since 1967. We have tried to provide material that is not only reliable and important, but that is accessible.  The books listed are either still in print or are available on used-book websites.  The articles listed are all available in PDF form.  Additional reading on these topics may also be found on our recommended reading page.
