Encountering Corpses III

Encountering Corpses III


This two-day conference is the concluding event of the ESRC Research Seminar Series ‘Encountering Corpses’ (2014-17) and the third international symposium on ‘Encountering Corpses’ (following events in Manchester in 2014 and 2016).

Encountering Corpses III will include an exciting mix of presentations from post-graduates, leading academics in the field and featured keynote speakers.

The Encountering Corpses projects and events focus on the many ways in which we increasingly encounter the material remains of the dead in a variety of contexts, including popular culture, the media, the everyday, tourism, heritage and archaeology, and medical contexts. The focus is on what these encounters mean for our relationships to the dead, which is explored through a mixture of academic papers, creative and cultural experiences, interactions with dead bodies and sites containing the dead, and discussion and reflection.

Keynote Speakers:

Prof. Catherine Nash, School of Geography, Queen Mary University of London

Dr Ruth Penfold-Mounce, Department of Sociology, University of York

Ass. Prof. Margaret M. Schwartz, Assistant Professor of Communication and Media Studies at Fordham University, USA

Convened by Craig Young, Professor of Human Geography at Manchester Metropolitan University
