ESSAY - CHANGING DEATH MANAGEMENT PRACTICES
Minimum length is 5 full pages. NOTE: You will use only the book The Last Dance ( [url removed, login to view] ) for this assignment. NO other references. A central theme of the course and your readings for the first exam is change. As you read the first five chapters in The Last Dance pay particular attention to how the American treatment of death has changed from 1900s to the present. A key concept is the epidemiologic transition; the shift in death from the young to the elderly, controlling death, and confining it to the elderly. The orphanage, once a fixed feature of our society, has all but disappeared. Couples, who fully expect their children to survive them, no longer have large families to insure that an offspring will be around to care for them. The death of a child which was once considered commonplace is now viewed as a tragedy. These are but a few of the changes clearly discussed in your text.
As you read the first five chapters make note of each change discussed so it can be incorporated into your first essay. The essay should address changes in actual death management practices (such as burial) as well as changes in attitudes toward death. The key is to read the chapters as each chapter is filled with changes you may use for your paper. You will easily be able to find more than 30 changes, so read the material prior to writing the essay.
You must use the following guidelines for Essay
• Address at least ten or more changes (be specific) that have taken place since 1900.
• You must cite changes from your book readings and include the page number it is found on.
• As you describe the change/practice (and page number), note how it has changed from the 1900s to the present (compare), and then move to the second change… third change … etc.
This is not a question over cross-cultural practices. Rather, the paper should address how death practices and attitudes in America have changed from 1900 to the present
