Death and dying are universal human experiences. Yet there is immense cultural variation and historical fluidity to the ways we define, understand and treat death, dying and relations between the living and the dead. This course explores the concepts of death and dying from three different disciplines (examples may include, but are not limited to, Anthropology, English and Comparative Literature, and American Studies). This course will consider similarities and differences between the three discipline research methodologies and will also introduce students to data literacy and principles of evidence.
