In this episode, PhD candidate Paula Shilliday talks to Professor Heather Conway about the intersections between the COVID-19 pandemic and the laws of death and burial. Prof Conway outlines the ways in which COVID-19 and related restrictions have impacted upon the socially and culturally significant act of the funeral, and the implications of this - in particular in terms of the potential risk to emotional wellbeing and mental health.
