Birth and death are the most universal of the human universals. In this companion piece to the podcast “Birth Rites”, Professor Burlingame explores the ways that death is an important rite of passage that affects the identities of both the living and the dead. More than being sad or morbid, viewing death in this biocultural way can be very life-affirming. (Originally aired on 5/5/2019)
