“Closure” has become a buzzword for a commodity to be bought and sold. Sociologist Nancy Berns explores the creation and sale of the “feeling rules” of closure: what it is, why it is both important and problematic.
Nancy Berns is a sociologist in the culture and society department at Drake University. She is the author of Closure: The Rush to End Grief and What It Costs Us.
A publication of the American Sociological Association.
