CALL FOR PAPERS
Monday 19th November 2012
10.30am - 4.30pm
BSA London Meeting Room, Imperial Wharf
Venue details can be found at: http://www.britsoc.co.uk/events/meetingroom.htm
Theme: Death and the Family
Currently much is made of the dying individual, but their deaths take place in a wider social context, in particular the family. Relationships at the end of life and post-death are central to how death, dying and bereavement are experienced.
Sociologically, how death is handled within families can reveal much about the networks in which people operate, and the ways in which people create meaning and attribute value in light of life and death.
We invite papers that theoretically and empirically consider our understanding of the family in relation to death. It is anticipated that topics covered by this call could include, but are not limited to: caring and carework, advocacy, fictive and new forms of kinship, ageing and generational difference(s), social networks/capital, reproductive loss, social death, bereavement and continuing bonds, funeral participation, mourning and memorialisation, as well as ethical issues surrounding euthanasia and assisted suicide.
Please send 250 word abstracts to Erica Borgstrom (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Deadline for abstract submission is 5pm Monday 10th September 2012.
