While attending Indiana University my research focus will center around the socio-cultural aspects, societal consequences, and the politicization of grief.
Members of every culture experience grief; the implications of grief are far-reaching and include the emotional, physical, social, economic, and personal. I am interested in understanding, from a sociocultural perspective, how contemporary western culture affords and sanctions grief. Specifically, when society is confronted with grief and bereavement in the form of the death of an intimate family member.
