ESF Friends of Oakwood Virtual Lecture Series: The Past and Future of CemeteriesCampus CalendarEvent Website
Thursday, March 18, 2021
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Event Description: David Charles Sloane, Ph.D., Professor at the Sol Price School of Public Policy at the University of Southern California (and Syracuse University alumnus) will lead a discus-sion on the past and future of cemeteries, based upon his two books, The Last Great Necessity: Cemeteries in American History (1995) and Is the Cemetery Dead? (2018). One of its superintendent's four sons, Dr. Sloane literally grew up inside Oakwood Cemetery, living in the house that faces Comstock Avenue and working to maintain the graves, monuments, and cemetery landscape. Presenting examples of current memorial trends and funeral practices---including "green burials" and movable or virtual memorials--- Professor Sloane will ask us to consider what the future life of our cemeteries may be.
