We are delighted to be supporting the emergent and vibrant interdisciplinary subject of Death Studies through a range of series that focus on particular aspects of the field. This meeting is a chance to discover our new book series Emerald Studies in Death and Culture, edited by Ruth Penfold-Mounce, Julie Rugg and Jack Denham, and Funerary International, edited by Julie Rugg.
Our Executive Publisher for Social Science Philippa Grand will be at the meeting looking for new books and series to sign. Please contact Philippa, if you would like to arrange a meeting with her during the conference.
