"Suicide has long been an uneasy yet somehow privileged site of 
attention for the humanities and social sciences. And yet in spite of 
this sense of the troubled importance of suicide, recognition of its 
relativity as a cultural practice has been restricted to what seems like 
a rather basic dichotomy separating the modern West and 'other 
societies'. What such a binarism tends to suppress is the extent to 
which acts of suicide tend to be, albeit in highly variant ways, 
performative acts or at least acts that are situated in determinate 
frames, assemblages or discourses of enactment and belief. This 
conference aims to explore the sense in which suicide is typically the 
object of such kinds of practices of enactment, framing and performance; 
to explore, that is, the sense in which there is a whole scenography of 
suicide."
