This event is presented by the Quad-Cities Campus chapter of Phi Theta Kappa honor society as part of the chapter’s 2021 Honors in Action Project. The students’ research question is, “How do different cultures deal with the effects of death according to their traditions and how is the legacy of the dead preserved?”
