This year the conference is delighted to welcome two keynote speakers: Psychologist and author Dr Elaine Kasket will present on her forthcoming book “All the Ghosts in the Machine”. Professor Charles Ess of the University of Oslo in Norway will address the ethical dimensions, challenges and potentials of death online research.
Valuable insights will also be shared on the ethical challenges of studying death online, digital afterlife – the way people can continue to have an online presence even after death, technological developments relating to funeral provision and mourning, as well as the pressures that relatives face when dealing with the emails and social media accounts that remain after death.
The conference, which will also include a special workshop for postgraduate students and early career researchers, will showcase new and ongoing research that will be considered for inclusion in an academic journal and for an open-access online platform.
