• Death and the popular imagination • Work in death and death-adjacent industries • Governance of mortality • Death in the digital age • Mass death in the age of individualism • Artistic approaches to mortality
This internationally reaching conference brings together death scholars, including postgraduate students, artists, the charity sector, the professional environment, as well as those who might not consider themselves death scholars whose work overlaps with thanatological enquiry.
