Within the inter/cross-disciplinary tradition of Death Studies, death is investigated as a multifaceted phenomenon, historically as well as in various contemporary contexts. This workshop aims to explore if and how queer theory and queer perspectives can help us rethink death, dying, remains, afterlife, mourning and the life-death dichotomy. The event is organised by GEXcel International Collegium for Advanced Transdisciplinary Gender Studies in collaboration with the Queer Death Studies Network (www.queerdeathstudies.wordpress.com).

Practical info: the workshop starts at 16:00 on 27th and finishes at 16:00 on 28th November.
