Prior work has suggested that individuals may protect themselves from existential anxiety through state nostalgia (Routledge et al. 2011), defined as “sentimenta...

Conference Paper
With the growing presence of death in social media, consumers are becoming more familiar with the posthumous representations of individuals, including celebrities.
