When a Chapter Ends: The experience of grief and loss

June 17, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Event details

What kind of relationships can we have with the dead?

How does grief change the experience of time?

What impact does grief have on how we experience our bodies?

What kinds of loss, other than bereavements, do we grieve over?

Philosophers from the University of York’s project ‘Grief: A Study of Human Emotional Experience’ discuss less understood aspects of the experience of grief that are of considerable practical and theoretical importance.

Please note that the topics discussed might be distressing to some people, given the nature of the subject matter.

This event will take place live on Zoom Webinar. You’ll receive a link to join a couple of days before the event takes place and a reminder an hour before. During the event, you can ask questions via a Q&A function, but audience cameras and microphones will remain muted throughout.
