A unique one-day event examining the social dimensions of nonsuicidal self-injury and supporting sociological, cultural and historical explorations of this critical and challenging issue.

Nonsuicidal self-injury is a significant contemporary idiom of personal distress and social estrangement, and an issue of major social concern. But, while current research tends to be dominated by highly individual and psychological understandings, it is increasingly recognised that such an approach leaves a substantial social dimension to the practice unexplained.

This symposium, supported by the Foundation for the Sociology of Health and Illness, and held at Newcastle University, brings together an impressive range of scholars with a track record of sociological and historical research into self-injury, to discuss this under-examined social dimension and reflect on how an understanding of it can best supplement, and critically support, clinical perspectives.

The event is free, though places are limited, so please book.

There are 6 travel bursaries for postgraduate researchers available.

Contact Pete Steggals for further details or with any enquiries: peter.steggals@newcastle.ac.uk
