Sheffield Death Group

Image of cemeteryThe aim of the Sheffield Death Group is to offer a friendly and informal space for members to meet for discussion, collaboration and to share thinking. We are a group of researchers and practitioners who work in the field of death, dying and bereavement and are local to Sheffield and the surrounding areas. Attendance at our events is open to individuals from different disciplines and at various stages of their careers, who wish to discuss their ideas and share their work with other interested parties. We host several events across the year, accommodating a variety of formats, including presentations, reading groups and workshops.

For more information or to join the group, please contact one of the co-convenors:
