Anthropology of Death & Dying

Is anyone on our list teaching anything like the anthropology of death and
dying? Do you know of bibliographies in this area? I have been out of the US in
South Korea for some years and have missed many developments in the field.

I have conceived a course using Celebrations of Death by Huntington as a basic
text. Any others out there. I am interseted in Buddhist rituals, hospice care &
the Tibetan sources and practices.

Any interest? I am formerly doctoral student at UPenn in late 70s.

Glad to discover this list
