'In Conversation with' Samuel Holleran and Fraser Allison
Public Life Amongst the Dead - Cemeteries as Park Spaces
The modern relationship with death and memorial is evolving quickly, with communities and the bereaved looking for a different engagement with their loved ones and with the cemetery space itself. What may not be commonly appreciated is that the cemetery has a long history of being a community space, a history that today's death care community can (and often already is) extend and benefit from.
In this fascinating chat with Samuel Holleran and Fraser Allison, who are both involved in multiple research projects focusing on Death Care and community relationships with death at the University of Melbourne, as they discuss this increasingly important topic from all angles.
