The Agency of the Dead
This seminar explores, whether, and in what cultural/historical/political/personal circumstances, the dead can exert agency, are believed to exert agency, or are mobilised by the living to exert agency, are questions implicit in bereavement research into continuing bonds, and also perhaps in collective memory studies, but has yet to be thoroughly explored.
Speakers: Annika Jonsson (Karlsrad University, Sweden; CDAS/SPS academic visitor), Lisa McCormick (Haverford College, USA; CDAS Associate), Joshua Graham, (CDAS, University of Bath)
