‘Death and Trauma’ is the second in the series of events ‘Death and the Contemporary’, hosted by Dr Georgina Colby and Anthony Luvera. The twenty-first century has witnessed a proliferation of work in the area of trauma, and it is widely acknowledged that our contemporary culture is a post-traumatic culture. How has trauma impacted the philosophical issues surrounding death? A panel discussion with four keynote speakers from across the disciplines of literature, the visual arts, and philosophy will provide an exciting forum in which to explore issues surrounding death and trauma in contemporary culture. Audience members will have the opportunity to engage with and contribute to these stimulating conversations. Further details of the series and confirmed panelists can be found at www.deathandthecontemporary.com.
