Event Details


The late Middle Ages were a time of intimate connection with death. Not just the abstract reality of death, but actual bodily decomposition. Whether it was the art of the macabre (with its dancing skeletons and worm-ridden sculpture), or the charnel houses and pauper's graves--such proximity to decay has the power to thrill the modern viewer. It is, after all, a far cry from our own sanitized death. Caitlin Doughty, founder of The Order of the Good Death & star of 'Ask a Mortician' YouTube series, will address what we can learn from our medieval brethren and discuss the cultural and personal benefits of relishing our own eventual decomposition.


Ticket includes gin punch.
