Description

Winter 2020 Lecture Series
Life, Death, and the Gods

Wednesday, January 29
7:30 p.m.
Kane Hall 130

What happens after death? How should the living care for the dead? How do beliefs about the gods and the afterlife shape different approaches to death and burial? In this exciting set of lectures, four UW historians examine the relationship between the living and the dead in Ancient Rome and Iran and among the Aztecs and the Chinese.
