The Finnish Death Studies Association (FDSA) was founded March 28th 2011 in Helsinki by scholars interested in the field of thanatological research. The aim was to create an organization that could create a more public interdisciplinary dialogue about death and dying in Finnish society.
The purpose of the association is also to advance the domestic death studies and professional education, create synergy between Finnish and international professionals and researchers, and last but not least, to promote discussion about researching, studying and working in the field of death and dying.
With this website the association wishes to provide information about future events both in Finland and abroad, publish small articles, book reviews, research reports and other texts concerning the vast and colorful field of death.
The site is managed mostly in Finnish, but we will try to publish in Swedish and in English as much as possible.
