31 Days of Death
The Death Reference Desk
Today marks the final day of Death Ref’s 31 Days of Death project.
The plan was to demonstrate that it’s quite easy to write about, discuss, and point towards articles and information on death, dying, and the dead body — every day.
This is important since it challenges the always popular argument that death is a socially repressed and taboo topic.
The exact opposite is true. We 21st Century First World Humans talk about death every single day. We can’t escape it.
And we’ve got 31 Days of Death postings to prove it.
One last plug for Death Ref John’s August gig as the Morbid Anatomy Museum’s Scholar in Residence. Click here for a full listing of what he’s doing at the MAM.
