PhD research topic:

The thesis aspires to shed light on the issue of pain and its management within contemporary social contexts and specifically to identify its manifestations and social impact, as identified and recorded in social media. The aim is to record and outline the emerging new form of mourning and its manifestations as it emerges through its public expression, the electronic funeral obituary that accompany the death ritual as well as the mourning form as the central exponent of pain. The above will concern us as central issues. This thesis aspires to highlight the relationship that develops with social media, their interaction and how this relationship is driven through various processes in the real world.
