In 2010 NSI, then known as the Institute for a Broadband Enabled Society (IBES), seed funded a project titled Death, Grieving and Memorialisation. That research project has released the book Death and Digital Media, adding to its outcomes and continuing the valuable research and discussion around death in the digital world. We love seeing how our funding seeds have grown and spread.

Death and Digital Media provides a critical overview of how people mourn, commemorate and interact with the dead through digital media. It maps the historical and shifting landscape of digital death, considering a wide range of social, commercial and institutional responses to technological innovations.

We invite you to join us for a book launch event at Readings in Carlton where you can hear from the researchers and grab yourself a copy of this fascinating read.
