Victorian death culture pioneered many new technological developments, such as inventions like the Shillibeer ‘funeral omnibus’. The conference also seeks to innovate by inviting international participation on the day.

In order to allow for wider participation and dissemination, we are planning to stream parts of the Materials of Mourning conference live on the 3 December. Allowing for the caprices of technology, you can watch a selection of the papers by visiting our UStream channel. On the day, downloads of the presentation slides will be available on the ‘streaming’ tab of this blog. We are very keen to take questions and comments from virtual participants: if you would like to ask a question to any of the speakers, please add it on the ‘streaming’ tab.
