EOLE 2021 : The End of Life Experience: 3rd Global Interdisciplinary Conference

Lisbon, Portugal
Event Date: Mar 12, 2021 - Mar 13, 2021
Submission Deadline: Sep 04, 2020
Notification of Acceptance: Sep 18, 2020
Camera Ready Version Due : Jan 15, 2021


This inclusive interdisciplinary conference explores dying and death and the ways culture impacts care for the dying, the overall experience of dying and ways the dead are remembered. Over the past four decades, scholarship in thanatology and palliative care has increased dramatically. Our conversations seek a broad array of perspectives that explore, analyse, and/or interpret the myriad interrelations and interactions that exist between death and culture. Culture not only presents and portrays ideas about “a good death” and norms that seek to achieve it, it also operates as both a vehicle and medium through which meaning about death is communicated and understood. Sadly, too, culture sometimes facilitates death through violence.
