Information:

Event duration: 90 mins total, free entry. This is the opening event of Good Grief Bristol, A Festival of Love and Loss. 11-17 May 2020 (https://goodgriefbristol.com/).

The first session of the festival will start with the Good Grief, Bristol opening ceremony. It will feature the Lord-Lieutenant Peaches Golding MBE, Pro Vice-Chancellor Professor John Iredale, and a recital of songs of loss and mourning by the University Singers. We will then kick off the conference proper with our first two speakers.

First, Professor Tony Walter from the University of Bath’s Centre for Death and Society will consider sociological approaches to grief and bereavement. He will explore how the intensely personal feeling of grief can be shaped by society, by culture and by politics.

Second, Dr Becky Millar looks to philosophy. Grief is one of the most distressing, unsettling and puzzling experiences that we can face. How can philosophy aid us in understanding such experiences? Dr Millar will outline some of the key challenges encountered in understanding grief, considering how philosophy can help address them.

Note: This is a free event but tickets are required. Your ticket will cover entrance to both the opening ceremony and the two talks that follow.
