From the design of tombs and depictions of the Madonna grieving for her Son to the composition of Requiems and memorialization in grief memoirs and elegies: death and grief have often elicited the response of creativity. These expressions have, in turn, become important topics for investigation in the humanities. Nonetheless, this research often remains within the confines of single disciplines. The present conference aims to create a conversation between disciplines by bringing together research on expressions of grief from different epochs and in different art forms, media, and genres in the West.
