Omschrijving

Shattered Grief is an intimate portrait of how COVID-19 changed the ways Americans approach, understand, and mourn death.

Shattered Grief examines the shifting landscape of religious identity and liturgy through deftly woven stories and interviews with people who experienced loss in the pandemic. Mikles argues for a trauma-informed approach to both doing religion and studying it, and her observations resonate across traditions and scope. This book will be valuable to practitioner and scholar alike, but most of all, should make the reader feel a little less alone.

Shattered Grief is a remarkably powerful book, primarily because of Natasha L. Mikles's beautiful, and revealing, interweaving of intimate stories of death during the pandemic with more abstract, yet still compelling, concepts in the study of religion. She brings together careful, ethnographic details and astute insights about the larger cultural shifts in meaning and practice around death in American society.

A society’s deathways are notoriously resistant to change. In this needful book, Mikles documents through interviews with doctors, nurses, undertakers, grieving family members, and pastors, rabbis, sheiks, and swamis how the pandemic overcame that resistance. As COVID protocols stymied traditional American deathways, Americans of all religions (and none) improvised. Shattered Grief tells their stories with sensitivity and smarts.

Natasha L. Mikles is an assistant professor at Texas State University. Her research interests revolve around lived interpretations of death, mourning, and the afterlife in diverse religious traditions ranging from contemporary American spirituality to nineteenth-century Tibetan Buddhism.
