Final Report - GREEK WOMEN - DEATH (Greek women and death, ancient and modern: a comparative analysis)

Project ID: 272227
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE


This is the final report for the GREEK WOMEN - DEATH project, which received funding under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The research is based on studies in ancient history combined with ethnographic fieldwork in modern Greece. Assuming that death-rituals have a focal and lasting importance, and are reflecting the gender relations within a society, the institutions surrounding death may function as a critical vantage point from which to view society. The accompanying report begins by describing the activities in which the researcher was involved in and notes that from a scholarly point of view, the project has an approach of great importance for the study of ancient and modern Greek culture, comparative cultural studies and women and gender research both in a South East European, but also a global perspective.
