The Arts of Dying

Date: Wed. March 28th, 2018, 4:00 pm-5:00 pm
Location: Dampeer Room, Kelvin Smith Library, 11055 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44106

In this talk, Maggie Vinter, Assistant Professor in the English Department of Case Western Reserve University, discusses the “arts of dying” – a genre of medieval and renaissance conduct manuals advising their readers on how to die well.  What does it mean to teach death, and what relevance could these ideas have today for writers and artists looking to represent mortality, or medical professionals and patients confronting terminal illness?

There will be an exhibit in the Hatch Reading Room of Special Collections on the topic following the talk and a reception.

This event is sponsored by the Kelvin Smith Library.
