Book Description:

This collection opens up spaces where lives end, bodies are disposed of, and memories are generated: hospitals, hospices, care homes, coroners’ courts, funeral premises, cemeteries, roadsides, and the spirit world. Using material culture studies, illuminates the ways human beings make meaningful the challenges of death, dying, and grief.
