Critical Suicide Studies: Creating Worlds Worth Living In

The Fourth Conference of the Critical Suicide Studies Network (a.k.a. CritSui4)

12-13 June 2020 – University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada.  Please see conference details and registration links here.  

Dear friends and colleagues. Given the current situation surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, we have come to the inescapable conclusion that we will need to postpone our  CritSui4 conference (June 12-13). We are super disappointed that this event cannot go ahead as planned as we had an amazing program lined up! It is our sincere hope that we’ll be able to re-schedule it for some time in 2021.

For those of you who have already made your own travel arrangements, please be in touch with the hotel as soon as possible to cancel. 

We will be in touch again regarding a date for next year. Do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or concerns. Deepest apologies for any inconvenience this may cause, but these are definitely unprecedented times.
