As digital media have become an integral part of our everyday life, so have death and our afterlife become inextricably interwoven with technology. Marking the formation of an international research network within the field, the first Death Online Research Symposium will focus on current research into the digital mediation of dying, death, mourning and personal legacy, in order to explore and discuss how online connectivity is changing how, when and where we engage with death.

Confirmed keynote speaker at the symposium will be Professor Tony Walter, Director of the Centre for Death and Society at the University of Bath. Invited speakers will include Professor Douglas Davies (Durham University) and Professor Steve Jones (University of Illinois at Chicago).
