Sarum College Principal James Woodward was a guest panellist on a recent Dialogue & Debate webinar called ‘A Good Death & The Community’. The webinar explored how particularly vulnerable groups, as well as the wider community, can be supported to allow for important bereavement rituals to be exercised, in ways that are safe, respectful and retain trust in the state and other public actors.
This webinar was presented by Cumberland Lodge Programme Director, Dr Jan-Jonathan Bock, with guest panellists:
- Dr Nick Long – Associate Professor, Department of Anthropology, London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)
- Linda Magistris – Chief Executive Officer and founder, The Good Grief Trust
- Julia Samuel MBE – Psychotherapist and author
- Canon James Woodward – Principal, Sarum College
This webinar, live-streamed on Wednesday 27 May, is part of the Cumberland Lodge Dialogue & Debate series of thought-provoking, interactive webinars, on topical issues. Every week, guest contributors from a range of backgrounds and perspectives are invited to take part. The webinars are streamed via Zoom and last for 40-60 minutes. Audience members online are invited to submit questions during the discussion via Zoom Q&A, or via our social media channels.
