14th October, 2.30pm–3.30pm
After 30 years as a palliative care specialist, Kathryn Mannix is on a mission. She feels passionately that it’s time to re-claim public understanding of dying; understand what the process is, and how it allows us to plan and relate to our dearest during the last part of our, or their, lives.
Join Kathryn as she discusses her new book, With the End in Mind, an exploration of one of the biggest taboos in our society and the only certainty we all share: death.
This extraordinary book sends a vital message to the living and answers the most urgent, intimate and fascinating questions about the end-of-life process with touching honesty and humility.
Kathryn will be in conversation with Professor Douglas Davies (Durham University), author of the widely used book Death, Ritual and Belief: The Rhetoric of Funerary Rites.
Chaired by Professor Douglas Davies, Durham University
