Death and Social Change in Greece
Preview not available

Abstract

The study of the material markers of death in contemporary Greece reveals several dimensions of mortuary practice not necessarily obvious from the analysis of social and symbolic data alone. In particular, such study points to significant class variations in conceptualizations of death and to increasing commodification of mortuary ritual, with important consequences for community, gender roles, and individual and collective identity.
