The Good Death Roundtable: A Brief History of Death and Dying

Featuring a discussion led by Joanna Ebenstein, co-founder and creative director of the former Morbid Anatomy Museum, we will consider the relatively recent history of death rituals and surrounding beliefs by looking into the Victorian Era.

About this roundtable series:

The Good Death roundtable is a forum that seeks to foster a better relationship with our mortality. Through the exploration of a history of death rituals, an examination of what death looks like presently, and a speculation on our own death and cultural attitudes toward death in the future, we will contemplate death in an effort of preparedness and understanding.
