HRF 063 | Culture of mourning in football – ENGLISH FOOTBALL

by: Adam Smith


… in conversation with Carmen

Grief in football, actually so obvious and yet it is always only one topic for an occasion. Rarely the big picture in view. Carmen, on the other hand, has found her own approach to this subject. Even the entry into the episode is very personal. As is so often the case in her life, she only found her vocation later, saddled up and now works as a funeral attendant. In addition, she has launched the project “Mourning and Football”. She gives lectures on the subject, writes texts and recently has her own column in the “Zeitspiel” magazine.
