The International Critical Suicide Studies Roundtable takes place on June 17 & June 18, 2021.
This roundtable will leverage our understanding of the current context (including but not limited to: COVID19, racism, climate crisis, opioid poisoning crisis, etc.) to illuminate some of the critical and systemic issues affecting suicide and suicide exposure. The roundtable will explore ways for interdisciplinary and critical suicide studies scholars to understand and respond to this current context:
- To include diverse perspectives;
- To suggest key areas for scholarly collaboration; and
- To identify strategies to develop alternative and interdisciplinary approaches and responses to suicide.
The planning of this event would not have been made possible without the support and collaboration with The SFU Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue team who will be joining us as our facilitators over the course of this two-day virtual event.
