The International Death, Grief and Bereavement Annual Conference

2014 Conference Theme: Sudden and Traumatic Death
Date: June 2 - 4, 2014
Poster and Paper Proposal Deadline: November 7, 2013

The Center for Death Education and Bioethics (CDEB) is a resource center for academic materials concerned with the issue of death, dying and bereavement in contemporary society.  Although the Center for Death Education is affiliated with the Sociology/Archaeology Department of UW-La Crosse, its resources can be helpful to many departments and programs on campus and in the community.

The CDEB has a large collection of journals, books and articles concerned with death, dying, bereavement, terminal illness, hospice care, etc.  We encourage people to come in and use the center's resources for academic projects or to satisfy personal interest; or one may phone or e-mail to inquire about information that is available. CDEB also makes available, at cost, brochures on grief and loss.
