Contents The essays in Planet Diana: Cultural Studies and Global Mourning discuss the immensity of popular response and grief at the death of Diana, Princess of Wales. Imaginatively working at the intersection of journalism and cultural studies, the contributors engage with the media events leading up to and surrounding Diana's death along with the spontaneous outpouring of emotion occasioned by the tragedy. The book also considers the global dimensions of the response and the profane popular cultural forms in which mourning is worked through -jokes, conspiracy theories, songs
