Nadia Sanger (English Department) and Louise du Toit (Philosophy) speak about the various vocabularies of grief, grieving and grievability. Our typical understanding of grief limits its experience to the loss of a human loved one; however, when one grieves, one’s eyes open to the large and small manifestations of grief in life. How does it differ from mourning, what is its function in human life, and can grief also take activist forms?
