The call for abstracts is now out for this year’s Death, Dying and Bereavement Symposium around the theme “Death and Time”.
We are inviting academics and practitioners to submit abstracts on the theme of time in relation to death, dying, and bereavement. We are particularly keen to encourage a broad and diverse set of papers that engage with (but are not limited to) the following issues:
- Defining moment/s at which death occurs
- Death-related experiences across the life-course
- Changes in social practices related to death, dying and bereavement over time
- Time and the processes of dying and decomposition
- Notions of “trajectories” in relation to death, dying and bereavement
- “Waiting” and other experiential aspects of temporality and death-related experiences
- Time-related metaphors associated with death, dying and bereavement (e.g. “journeying”)
Submit abstracts of no more than 250 words to BSADDB@gmail.com by midnight GMT Monday 18th September 2017. With your submission, include your name, affiliation and contact details. Presentations will be 20 minutes long with additional time for questions.
The symposium will be held on Friday, 01 December 2017 at the BSA Meeting Rooms at Imperial Wharf. The annual symposium is run by the British Sociological Association Social Aspects of Death, Dying and Bereavement study group (DDB). More details about the call for papers, registration, and the study group can be found here.
