Döstädning, or death cleaning, is the Swedish practice of setting our affairs in order in our later years. In this event we’ll explain death-cleaning and life-clearing.
Professor Douglas Davies FBA is the Director of Durham University’s Centre for Death and Life Studies and the author of A Brief History of Death. He’ll be joined by Professor Hilary Grainger, OBE, leading scholar on British crematorium design, and author and activist James Wallman, whose book Stuffocation reveals the world’s growing sense of stuffocation and how we can move away from it. His most recent book is Time and How to Spend it.
This event is perfect for fans of Marie Kondo’s The Life-changing Magic of Tidying and Margareta Magnusson’s popular book The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning.
