(p.25) 2 Exploring the Meanings of Death
Transforming the Culture of Dying

This chapter examines the PDIA-funded work that emerged from the arts and humanities program. It considers activities exploring the meaning of death that were supported from generic grants and through a number of other special initiatives. It presents examples of community engagement projects, artistic endeavors, and some research studies. These activities demonstrate how PDIA gave expression to a range of work that allowed for the elucidation of meanings relating to death, dying, and bereavement in modern America—and in turn how it provided a framework for thinking about the configuration of end-of-life care services.

Keywords:   Project on Death in America, PDIA, death, dying, bereavement, grants, arts and humanities program, community engagement projects
