Christopher Perrin Beatty Lecture
Navigating the Many Shapes of Loss and Grief
Presented by Dr. Darcy Harris, Professor of Thanatology
The lecture will explore how change, loss, and transition shape our lives in various ways, and how grief can be viewed as both an essential and potentially transformative experience.
The Christopher Perrin Beatty Lecture is presented annually by the recipient of the King's Full-Time Faculty Award of Excellence in Teaching. The lecture was established by the Beatty family to honour the memory of their son Christopher '07, who passed away in 2008 at the age of 23.
