*Deadline extended* Call for Book Chapters (Edited Collection): A Reflexive study of the Rituals Associated with Death and Dying (working title)

The editors wish to put together an interdisciplinary collection of essays that utilize reflexive scholarly inquiry to interrogate cultural responses to death by gathering essays that analyze various aspects of death while at the same time acknowledging that death affects us all. Any study on the topic cannot be decontextualized. We must all necessarily grapple with loss and mortality as we examine cultural responses to death.

Dear H-Death members,

Those of you interested in illness, death and grieving in the Mediterranean during the Medieval may be interested in two new papers.

Recently the writing system of a Medieval manuscript was revealed to be proto-Romance: i.e. the ancestor to Spanish and the other modern Romance languages. In addition, it is written with a proto-Italic alphabet. It is the only known document of this kind and therefore has considerable linguistic and historic importance.
