Institutions and Death: The Care in Funerals Panel Presentation at the Centre for Death and Society Annual Conference
2022-06-15

On 9th and 10th June 2022, several members of the Care in Funerals research team had the pleasure of attending the annual conference of the University of Bath’s Centre for Death and Society (CDAS), hosted online. The theme this year was ‘Institutions and Death’.

In addition to an interactive session in which we introduced and demonstrated the project’s ethics casebook, we also hosted a panel presentation – four short papers, each focussing on an ‘institution,’ illuminating something of the role these institutions played in death care during the pandemic. After Abi Pattenden’s introduction to the project, we opened with Arnar Arnason, speaking about family and community. Jennie Riley then presented on religious institutions and how they navigated care for the body. Paolo Macaggno continued by examining funeral directors’ policies for the viewing (or not) of the body during the pandemic. Jennie finished up by exploring funeral hybridization in crematoria.

It was great to welcome a good virtual audience, and to answer some of their questions about the project and our emerging findings.

This PDF is a copy of the slides we used, accompanied by some of the text from our presentations.
