The Department of Ultimology was invited to chair a discussion entitled What is Death? as part of Trinity College Dublin's Neurohumanities programme in the University’s Schrödinger theatre, and invite selected guests to the panel.

Speakers included Ellen Finn (Trinity Long Room Hub), Alexandra Grieser (Dept of Religions and Theology), Ann Murphy (Clinical Psychiatry), and Siobhán O’Sullivan (Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland).

The event was the second discussion in the What is Life? — Neurohumanities Lunchtime Seminar Series, organised as part of Schrödinger at 75—The Future of Biology, a major conference that marked the 75th anniversary of What is Life? (three historic public lectures delivered by Nobel Prize-winning physicist Erwin Schrödinger in 1943 at Trinity College Dublin) that took place in the National Concert Hall of Ireland on the 5th and 6th of September, 2018.

The Neurohumanities programme was supported by a 2016 Wellcome Trust ISSF Award to Trinity College Dublin. This collaborative programme is directed by the Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience (TCIN), Trinity Long Room Hub (TLRH) and Science Gallery Dublin (SGD), chaired by Mani Ramaswami, Director TCIN and supported by Aisling Hume in the TCIN.
