After the success of the first Skeletons, Stories, and Social Bodies conference, we are keen to encourage the growth of this interdisciplinary conference by including colleagues from a range of subject areas covering death and the human body. We particularly encourage submissions from students, early career researchers, and those with backgrounds in technical, industry, museum, and commercial sectors.
We are accepting abstracts for presentations until 30th November – you can apply for a podium, Pecha Kucha, or a poster presentation.
We are also accepting submissions for artwork to be included in our art exhibition. We are able to accept work in a variety of mediums, and although we do not need to view completed work before the submission, a rough idea/concept will be needed at the point of submission. Please note the deadline for artwork submissions is 15th December.
For students, we are also pleased to be able to offer a limited number of student bursaries which will cover registration costs of SSSB 2018. Please note it is not a requirement that you present in order to receive a bursary. The deadline for bursary applications is also 30th November.
Further info is available here. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
