Update: The full/correct email address for Miriam Karrel is

Dalhousie University anthropology student Miriam Karrel would like our help.  Please see her note below:

Are you an atheist, and would you like to discuss death? My name is Miriam Karrel, and I am currently researching how atheists or non-believers cope with death as part of my honours degree in anthropology at Dalhousie. I would like to interview self-identified atheists or non-believers to find out more about their practical ways of dealing with death, their thoughts about death and experiences of death. This would involve a one-to-one interview of about an hour, conducted in a location of your choice. If this is something you are interested in, please contact me at for more information.

Please reply to Miriam Karrel directly at or in the comments.

    I would be interested in that conversation. I’ll be 60 this year, it has a certain imminence.

    I would love to help as well, but I live in Ontario. A face to face interview would be impractical. Any chance of an e-mail or telephone interview? If not, I wish you all the best in your research…

    I am 40 years old and am awaiting my second kidney transplant. Death (and the advice on how to cope with it) is all around me at all times. I take treatment at a catholic hospital so it makes for some interesting discussions. I would love to participate or even connect with like minded people.
