The Matter of Death : Space, Place and Materiality Hardback
Edited by Jenny Hockey, Carol Komaromy, Kate Woodthorpe
This collection opens up spaces where lives end, bodies are disposed of and memories generated: hospitals, hospices, care homes, coroners' courts, funeral premises, cemeteries, roadsides, the spirit world.
Using material culture studies it illuminates the ways human beings make meaningful the challenges of death, dying and bereavement.
