This-worldly afterlives: On the religious, biosocial and ecological sustainability of the deceased

    Activity: Talk and presentationAcademic presentationAcademic


    During this seminar, we will explore how the global turn to social and ecological sustainability is impacting on people’s lived afterlife beliefs, that is: their understanding of and engagements with the continuance of the deceased. I will argue that we observe a transition from otherworldly to thisworldly engagements, and illustrate how people sustain their deceased in religious, biosocial and ecological ways.
