Call for papers

The theme of the 2015 DDD International Conference is ‘Eastern and Western Ways of Dying and Death’. The conference welcomes papers from academics, professionals and practitioners from a wide range of disciplines on any issue which addresses this topic: history, anthropology, sociology, arts, literature, music, archeology, cultural studies, philosophy, religion, psychology, medicine, etc. Multi-disciplinary, interdisciplinary and comparative approaches are particularly encouraged. The main aim is to render visible the differences but also the similarities between Western and Eastern ways of understanding and socio-culturally constructing death, in order to foster and enhance the knowledge in the field of death studies.

Abstracts (between 250 and 350 words) and a list of keywords are expected no later than the 1st of April. They should be submitted via EasyChair system.
