1st Global ConferenceThe End of Life Experience
Dying, Death and Culture in the 21st Century
including a visit to a centre in Lisbon which specialises in end of life care (tbc)
Saturday 17th March 2018 – Sunday 18th March 2018
This inclusive interdisciplinary conference explores dying and death and the ways culture impacts care for the dying, the overall experience of dying, and how the dead are remembered. Culture not only presents and portrays ideas about “a good death” and norms that seek to achieve it, culture also operates as both a vehicle and medium through which meaning about death is communicated and understood.
