Digital Mourning: coping with loss in online environments.

Rituals of mourning across the world have long played a part in supporting communities to restore social order in the face of death. But how does this work in online environments? Based on an overview of online memorials, shrines and Rest in Peace (R.I.P.) group sites, the speaker discusses how we cope with grief, death and dying in a techno-social era.

After the talk, participants will be invited to participate in a group discussion, where they can share their own examples or experiences. Tea and cake will be served.

Dr Korina Giaxoglou is Senior Lecturer in English Language and Communication at Kingston University.
