The Senses and Spaces of Death, Dying and Remembering: Historical and Contemporary Perspectives

Bringing together, artists, academics and professionals working in a range of services relating to end of life.

This conference will consider how space plays a role in practices of remembrance in the past and present, and in different cultures across the world. Through talks, performances and opportunities for discussion, we’ll think about being in a particular place might help us remember those we have lost, what emotions spaces bring about, and how we engage with places to keep their memories alive.

This conference is jointly organised by The Grief Series team, led by Ellie Harrison, and the University of Leeds’ ‘Living with Dying’ project, led by Dr Laura King. For more information see:
