Description: The Celebration of Death in Contemporary Culture investigates the emergence and meaning of the cult of death. Over the last three decades, Halloween has grown to rival Christmas in its popularity. Dark tourism has emerged as a rapidly expanding industry.
H-Death is a scholarly network that explores the multitude of historical issues surrounding the process and experience of dying and death. The H-Death network will allow scholars to compare and contrast the processes and experiences of dying and death across time and space, including American, European and non-Western contexts.
