Subject: Symposium: Roadside Memorials

I would like to post a call for papers for an international symposium
Roadside Memorials: a multi-disciplinary approach.

Papers are invited that examine the phenomenon of roadside
memorialisation from the perspective of any relevant discipline.
Papers on related topics, especially other forms of public
memorialisation also will be considered. Related papers may include
topics from death studies, history, psychology, sociology, roadside
studies, road safety, travel studies, studies in grief and mourning
and studies in memorial culture.

It is intended that the most relevant papers will be published as an
edited collection.

The symposium will be held at the University of New England in
Armidale, New South Wales, Australia on 25, 26 and 27 June 2004.

Abstracts of no more than 300 words are invited by 31 July 2003. For
further information please contact the organiser, Dr Jennifer Clark,
School of Classics, History and Religion, University of New England,
