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.
