21st Colloquium on Cemeteries

Friday 22 May 2020, 9.00AM

This event takes place in York every year and comprises a day meeting between scholars with an interest in cemeteries, burial and disposal of the dead more generally. Disciplines that are routinely represented include historians, art historians, sociologists, anthropologists, cultural geographers, historical archaeologists, conservators and policy analysts. The Colloquium generally draws international speakers. A key aspect of the meeting is its informality and the time dedicated to question and discussion. This is a highly valuable forum in which to present new and emerging research. Abstracts of no more than 250 words should be sent by the 30th April to: Dr Julie Rugg, Cemetery Research Group, email: Please ensure that the abstract is in Word format. Queries about the event should in the first instance be directed by email to the address given.

Location: University of York
