“You think the dead we loved ever truly leave us? You think that we don’t recall them more clearly in times of great troubles?” Professor Albus Dumbledore

Since time began, human beings have grappled with one big question – where do we go after we die? From ancient folklore to movies like Ghost and Truly, Madly Deeply, cultural representations of ghosts and spirits offer fascinating insights into our relationship with death and grief over the centuries.

In this panel session we will explore the cultural history of ghosts and the stories we build around them, as well as the neuroscience of grief hallucinations and the ways in which we experience the dead after they have gone.
