Call for Papers 'Marginal Death' symposium: deadline 16 October 2015

Keynote speaker - Prof. Craig Young: "A place for the dead?: socio-cultural approaches in death, dying and disposal - marginal or moving to the centre?"

'Marginal Death: Doing Edgework' symposium will take place on Wednesday 2nd December at the University of York. 

There is a sustained western cultural fascination with death, dying, dead bodies and wounds that includes, but is not limited to film, television, artwork, music and literature making death one of the most fertile areas to conduct research. Yet, despite this prevalence of morbidity and death representation within everyday culture it remains overshadowed by the broader death studies research framework that focuses on policy and law – the practicalities of dealing with death, the dying and the dead. Through the topic of death, this symposium seeks to bring together research which is conducted across a range of disciplines but which is often swept to the edges of death studies due to its cultural nature. It seeks to provide a platform for researchers  to present and discuss their death edgework conducted in social science, the arts and humanities and contribute to the growing network of researchers engaging with death in unconventional ways.

We invite papers that focus especially, but not exclusively, on the following themes: 
- Death in popular culture
- Dead Bodies
- Death and the visual
- Fashion and the dead
- Playing Dead/Dead Acting
- Social Media and Death
- Celebrating Death
- Undeath and the undead
