Contested Deaths and Coronial Justice in the Digital Age


This article discusses emergent digital mechanisms that are engaging with, analysing and challenging coronial practice and state talk around contested deaths. Drawing on key examples, the article argues that these mechanisms represent and enable a growing, interactive public dialogue around deaths in controversial circumstances, which has the potential to shape how we might understand aspects of death justice and knowledge about the dead and their bereaved in the digital age.
