Conference Program


Death, dying and burial produce artefacts and occur in a spatial context. The interplay between such materiality, spatiality and the bereaved who commemorate the dead yields interpretations and creates meanings that can change over time. In this conference we explored this interplay by going beyond the consideration of simple grave artefacts on the one hand and graveyards as a space on the other, by examining the specific interrelations between materiality, spatiality, the living and the dead.
