Death and Culture Conference

Just a quick post to let folks know about a conference on Death and Culture at the University of York September 1st-3rd. It is exciting to see a lineup of all female keynote speakers.

They are taking calls for papers till the 1st of April, so there is some time for those that might want to be involved, but schedules do fill up quickly so don’t put it off.  Let your local death-academics know. 

Per the website:

“This conference focusses on the impact of mortality on culture, and the ways in which the very fact of death has shaped human behaviour, evidenced through thought, action, production and expression. The conference seeks to re-engage with the study of mortality as an academic enterprise, supported by evidence and framed by theoretical engagement. No discipline is excluded, and we are encouraging researchers including postgraduates to contribute who might not consider themselves death scholars, with work that overlaps with death and the dead.”
