Virtual Conference "Until death do us part"

Submitted by Ruiha Smalley on 12 April 2021

The Riyal Holloway, University of London are holding a virtual conference which may be of interest. It is titled "Until Death Do Us Part: Historical Perspectives on Death and those Left Behind".

"The subject of death and commemoration has been well-treated in the historiography of all periods, but its social and psychological impact on individuals close to the deceased has been much less studied. As such, this conference aims to take a multi-disciplinary and cross-period approach to this topic, examining the ways in which the role of death and grief in society have changed over time. Broadly defined, this includes the reactions and responses to death (however it was expressed or experienced) of widows and widowers, orphans, friends, relatives, and wider communities, as well as its social and cultural impact and the sources and material culture which emanated from death."
