Abstract

This project aims to investigate the contexts, motivations, responses to, and implications of emerging alternatives to the profoundly important practices of burial and cremation. This project will provide a timely and critical investigation of the social, cultural, regulatory, commercial, environmental, and personal challenges posed by alternative technologies for disposal of the dead. Expected outcomes will inform the funeral industry, regulators and the public.
