The Cemeteries Colloquium is held every year in person in York, and will next take place on the 23rd May, 2025. 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.

A call for papers will be issued towards the end of 2024.
