About Us

The Centre for Death and Life Studies (CDALS) exists to foster and conduct research into life-values, beliefs, and practices that relate to living and dying.

The Centre seeks to encourage and facilitate interdisciplinary approaches wherever possible between the humanities, the social and life sciences and medicine. It also benefits from the support of Durham University's Institute of Advanced Study.
