Death on Facebook: Learning to Grieve Online
Death on Facebook: Learning to Grieve Online is an 85 page-long work that examines two things: first, the manner in which American youth grieve the deaths of their friends and loved ones, and second, how technology mediates the expression of that grief. The work is built upon the idea that anthropology can be used as a means to understand technology as a cultural production.
Death on Facebook was completed under the advisement of Isabelle Clark-Deces and resides in published form in Princeton University's Mudd Library.
