The Cemeteries Colloquium is held every year in person in York, and will next take place on the 24th May, 2024. Scholars with an interest in disposing the dead will find an engaged and expert audience. The event is international and interdisciplinary, covering subjects across the social sciences and humanities. Indeed, the very interdisciplinary nature of the papers and the audience makes for particularly fruitful dialogue. Past conference abstracts give a good indication of the breadth of interest represented here. This is an informal event with a strong emphasis on discussion, and is a particularly supportive environment for scholars new to this field.

The programme for this year’s event is now available here. Booking is available via Eventbrite. Please search for ’25th Cemeteries Colloquium’.
