November Events

Each month I’m going to post a list of the events which might be of interest for those studying death and disposal, including courses, exhibitions, talks, conferences, art, and book launches.

Below are a list of the events coming up in the next month I’m aware of. If you think I’ve missed off an interesting event, please leave a comment or email me at

I’ve also added a couple of things which aren’t happening this month, if advance warning seemed useful!
