We are soliciting critical papers to be included in a collection on death
and the corpse. Essays should investigate events or cultural phenomena

German exhibit "Koerperwelten". Of particular interest are works
investigating the spectacular aspects of such events.

Topics may include but are not limited to:
o the real corpse as art, art and the corpse
o the aesthetics of death
o the corpse as public phenomenon
o corpses and freak shows
o anatomy and the public, public anatomy
o ethical questions
