Transnational Death, an edited volume
What kinds of options for burial and commemoration rituals exist in  
different places and cultures? How are such practices shaped by time and place?
Where and  
how do people themselves wish to be buried, and how do burial choices speak to
identifications with home?

Is it important for relatives to be present at funerals and to be able  
to visit graves? How can transnationalism be viewed through deaths occurring at
war or  
peacekeeping in distant frontiers? How are funerals and mourning rituals
arranged in unusual  
circumstances when people are on the move, such as during the current refugee
crisis? How  
has death and mourning been narrated by migrants, and how do these narrations
to transnationalism and identity?

This volume addresses the practices and representations of  
transnational death. It welcomes articles based on ethnographic and historical
studies of transcultural   mourning and
commemorative rituals in migrant families, communities, transnational  
cemeteries, and commemorative practices with a broad geographic lens. Abstracts
