In death-averse American society, the field of thanatology is often socially and academically isolating. The purpose of this article is to describe the experiences of a group of death scholars and share insights gained as members of an interdisciplinary team. They discuss the ways in which they have created a special "safe" space for death study collaboration. The melding of their individual passions, personalities, and professional perspectives has allowed them to form a productive and satisfying work environment. Additional discourse in this field is needed on the nature and processes of such death-studies groups.
