International Critical Suicide Studies Research Roundtable
The purpose of this International Research Roundtable is to bring together a diverse group of scholars, practitioners, artists, activists, and those who have personal experience with suicide, to co-generate a wide range of inclusive understandings of suicide as a means to mobilizing strategies for suicide prevention and bereavement. By drawing on multiple, embodied knowledges and intellectual traditions, we seek to build upon and challenge some of the taken-for-granted positivist and biomedical logics that have come to dominate the study of suicide and the practice of suicide prevention in the modern era. Through a creative dialogical process, we aim to identify new research opportunities and practice approaches to suicide prevention that are creative, socially just, and culturally responsive.
This roundtable is a closed event and will be held on June 17-18, 2021. For more information, please go to the Roundtable website.
