The Forum for Suicide and Culture Research provides links to, and discussions about, news, publications, and resources in the field of cross-cultural self-harm and suicide research and treatment/prevention.The Forum also publishes occasional research and review articles.
Although multidisciplinary, the Forum emphasizes qualitative research and approaches to the theorization of suicidal practices which seek to develop new understandings. In particular, we are interested in the cultural, social, and historical construction of self-harm and suicide in time and place.
Submissions are welcome! If you have anything you’d like to say or post, please feel free to leave a reply on individual posts, use the form, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Forum is curated by Dr Tom Widger, an anthropologist with research interests in suicide in South and Southeast Asia.
