- Call for Papers: Dying, Death and the Politics of After-Death in the African World. 20 – 22 March 2013, University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Nigeria
This conference explores dying and death in Africa, how culture in Africa has shaped palliative care for the dying as well as ways in which the dead are perceived, buried and celebrated/remembered in various communities, times and histories. Sadly studies of thanatology in Africa have not been very remarkable. To this extent, this inter-disciplinary conference seeks a wide range of perspectives that explore and study the interface between death and culture. Most African cultures not only embody ideas about good and bad death as well as customs that promote and decry them respectively; culture generally also provides a mechanism for transmitting and appreciating the meanings and essences of death and mortuary practices. In addition, culture can also facilitate or sanction death through its enabling traditions and agencies, including religion and some acts of violence, such as sacrifice or warfare. Conversely, death and after-death processes are windows through which cultures can be appraised or appreciated.
