Australia 12-13 December 2018).

Dear colleagues,

It is with enormous excitement that we invite you to participate in the 3rd
Conference of the Critical Suicide Studies Network (a.k.a. CritSui3), to be
held in Perth WA at the University of Western Australia 12-13 December.

*About the Critical Suicide Studies Network*

The Critical Suicide Studies Network presents an approach to understanding,
theorising and intervening in suicide from alternative perspectives. Such
perspectives have sought to find renewed, more critical ways of thinking
about suicide to address and respond to suicide where traditional
approaches have failed.

Such a beginning could not be more timely.  Many working within suicidology
have become frustrated by the limitations of dominant pathologising and
medicalised approaches to suicide research and prevention practices.
Believing that suicide research is in need of an ongoing critical
re-thinking of its subject matter and a broadening of it disciplinary
basis, Critical Suicide Studies investigates the social, philosophic,
psychological, literary and cultural practices of making sense of suicide,
taking into account how suicide is shaped by history, politics, identity,
culture, media and power.  As an approach, it works with service providers,
communities and publics to develop nuanced but useful accounts of suicide
that can help build bridges across theory and practice and affected

*Invitation for participation in roundtables*

This conference, the first to be held in the southern hemisphere, builds on
prior Critical Suicide Studies conferences in Prague, Czech Republic (2016)
and Canterbury, UK (2017), turning the attention to networking, impact and
engagement of critical approaches with service providers, advocates,
policy-makers and everyday people affected by suicide.

We would like to invite scholars, relevant service providers, policy-makers
and advocates to participate in roundtable discussions that provoke
dialogue across a range of topics explore exploring critical approaches to
suicide and how these can foster changes in policy and provision with real
impact, real consultation and real engagement.

We are particularly interested in short presentations (c. 15 minutes) that
can join one or more of the following roundtables:

-- Lived Experience of Suicide

-- Critical Methodologies

-- Indigenous knowledges

-- Migrants, refugees, asylum seekers and socio-political conditions of

-- Gender and sexually-diverse persons, subjects and communities

-- Critical suicide approaches in practice (marginal and alternative

We welcome proposals relevant to any of the above roundtables as well as
others that fit within the field of Critical Suicide Studies (see
https://criticalsuicidology.net/what-is-critical-suicidology/ for guidance).

*To submit, please send a 250-word proposal, title, and short biography to *
*critsui3 at gmail.com* <critsui3 at gmail.com>* by no later than 30 June 2018.*

We look forward to hearing from you soon.
