Dr. William Hoy Addresses Death, Dying, Funerals, and Going "Beyond the Casserole"
Our guest is Dr. William Hoy, who has studied funeral rites and rituals (as practiced worldwide) for three decades, examining how they're used to help mourners both make sense of death and deal with the major changes it brings to the lives of suvivors. Dr. Hoy teaches in the Medical Humanities Program in the College of Arts and Sciences at Baylor University. He'll be the first speaker (on September 3rd) in a three-speaker series of events happening soon at the OU-Tulsa Schusterman Learning Center. These three free-to-the-public gatherings, known collectively as the 2019 Community Conversation Series, are being presented by Clarehouse; you can learn more about the series here.
