2016 Events

International Death, Grief and Bereavement Conference
University of Wisconsin - La Crosse
June 6-8, 2016
The purpose of this conference is to provide a variety of quality presentations and sessions on death, grief and bereavement as it relates to caregiving where participants learn, are motivated and are encouraged to use what they have learned in their place of business or personal lives when they return.

Death & Culture Conference
University of York (UK)
1-3 September 2016
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.
