Death Online Research is a network of international researchers with a background primarily in the Humanities, Social Sciences and Law studies. We study how dying, death and the afterlife is mediated and expressed online. This includes research into memorial sites online; new ways of grieving though social media; the use of mobile technologies in graveyards; the digital afterlife and people’s digital legacy; as well as a variety of other perspectives on the impact digital technology has on everyday practices in the context of death.
The network was initiated by Stine Gotved, and the first assembly took place in January 2013 at the IT University of Copenhagen, Denmark, co-funded with Aarhus University, Aarhus, Denmark.
