In a recent story for The Atlantic, Erika Hayasaki quotes Megan Rosenbloom of USC's Norris Medical Library about the "growing 'death movement.'" A librarian who manages the library's history of medicine and rare book collections, Rosenbloom is also an organizer of Death Salon, a group of academics, artists, and death-industry professionals who explore themes of mortality and mourning in American culture.

Rosenbloom also recently blogged about resuscitation for Lapham's Quarterly, and on October 17 she discussed related themes—and much more—with author Mary Roach as part of a USC Visions and Voices event.
