From Coffins to Compost: The history of the American funeral industry
Learn about the history of the American funeral industry and how a few pre-Civil War events changed the trajectory of death care forever. This class explores the modern practices of the industry and how they came to be. We also learn about the women of the West Coast who are taking back death care and destabilizing what we now know as the American funeral industry.
