Discussion for The Sociology of Death and Dying
Ed Nelson (Faculty)
Nice collection of links. Also includes links to data sets that could be used and to class projects in the author's classes over the years. Would be useful background material for someone developing a course in this area. Would be difficult to use in a lecture.
I assume that the students all gave their permission for these materials to be posted. Also, are the links checked frequently?

This site offers a lot of information on death and dying. However, there is material here that might be relevant for other sociology courses. For example, there is information on current debates in abortion and euthanasia. I found it easy to locate information and I think students would be interested in this material. This site includes research into a variety of different topics including differences by race, sex and so on.
If you are using the site for a class other than death and dying, you mght have to provide clear directions to students on what you want them to review.
