[ecrea] CFP: Death & Culture II Conference

Fri Mar 09 11:47:59 GMT 2018

We're pleased to announce that the call for papers deadline for the second Death & Culture conference has been extended to 1st May.

Death & Culture II Conference
6-7 September 2018, University of York

Registration and abstract submission are now open for the second iteration of the Death and Culture conference taking place in September 2018. Registration fees include food and drink for the two days and a conference meal. The human response to mortality is a research theme across the arts, humanities and social sciences. As a result, this conference seeks to provide a forum for networking and sharing interdisciplinary death scholarship. We welcome research rooted in empirical studies as well as conceptual and theoretical engagement which focus on cultural responses to death and the ways it has shaped understandings and perspectives on mortality. The conference, in its second iteration, seeks to continue engaging with the study of mortality as an academic enterprise, supported by evidence and framed by theoretical engagement. This truly interdisciplinary event brings together death scholars, including postgraduates, as well as those who might not consider themselves death scholars whose work that overlaps with death and the dead. 2016’s inaugural conference was a roaring success, with papers presented from a variety of different disciplines across three days. This year, we invite abstracts that contribute (but are not limited) to the following themes;
•	Governance of mortality;
•	Death in the popular imagination;
•	Death and the digital realm;
•	Work in the death industry;
•	Mass death in the age of individualism;
•	Artistic death.
250 word abstracts with 100 word biographies to (death-and-culture /at/ by 1 May 2018 – registration via University of York’s online store by 1 August 2018.
