This research seminar will be a workshop for students who want to work on the history of death and of the dead among the living. It will, after reading some essential anthropological texts and a superb new book about the dead in post communist Hungary, concentrate on Great Britain and continental western Europe from the eighteenth entury to the present. Students with other geographical or temporal interests are, however, welcome. A detailed discussion of the seminar will be posted on my web siote in early May.
