Digital Grief

Wednesday 4 April

Our lives are increasingly lived online and when we die, we leave behind emails, social media accounts and a world of other data for those closest to us to deal with. Now, digital technologies are also influencing our grieving processes; social media now share both personal and collective mourning online, chatbots act as grief counsellors and more and more people are faced with the challenge of mourning the digital legacies of their loved ones. Dr Korina Giaxoglou, who researches the sharing of mourning on social media, will be joined by social scientist and mental health expert Dr Jo Bell and sociologist Debra Bassett to explore how we grieve in the digital age.
