Welcome to this collaboration between:

This interdisciplinary symposium forms part of our research project Perceptions of Death in Collective Memory: Numbers | Spaces | Texts. It brings together speakers from a range of disciplines, including mathematics, architecture, social and policy sciences, arts and literature to share and discuss from the perspective of their practice and research, how as a society we perceive, construct and represent death and memory in our daily lives.

The symposium is structured to explore our perception of death from three different angles.

This is a free online symposium taking place on 2nd November 2021 from 15:00h-19:00 (CET) / 14:00h-18:00h (GMT), hosted by Bishop Grosseteste University, UK.
