About this Project

2014 – 2015

The Living Mortal Project was a broad interdisciplinary collaboration intended to engage with the profound questions surrounding death and catalyze substantive change in both scholarly investigation and cultural reception of mortality. Through primary qualitative research on cancer patients’ experiences of mortality; an innovative workshop series that brings together faculty from diverse disciplinary practices – from Medicine, Archaeology, Art History, Philosophy, and many more; and the creation of a new medical school curriculum module, The Living Mortal Project explored the various ways humans negotiate mortality and help prepare future doctors in a broadly humanistic model for the care of patients in the end of life.
