Drawing on diverse theoretical and textual sources, The Gender of Suicide presents a critical study of the ways in which contemporary society understands suicide, exploring suicide across a range of key expert bodies of knowledge. With attention to Durkheim's founding study of suicide, as well as discourses within sociology, law, medicine, psy-knowledge and newsprint media, this book demonstrates that suicide cannot be understood without understanding how gender shapes it, and without giving explicit attention to the manner in which prevailing claims privilege some interpretations and experiences of suicide above others. Revealing the masculine and masculinist terms in which our current knowledge of suicide is constructed, The Gender of Suicide, explores the relationship between our grasp of suicide and problematic ideas connected to the body, agency, violence, race and sexuality. As such, it will appeal to sociologists and social theorists, as well as scholars of cultural studies, philosophy, law and psychology.

About the Author:

Katrina Jaworski is a Lecturer in Cultural Studies at the School of Communication, International Studies and Languages, University of South Australia.

Review:

'Approaching the concept of suicide from the perspectives of gender and culture, Katrina Jaworski presents a beautifully-written and theoretically engaging account of suicide that troubles key cultural ideas of agency, intent, bodies, psychology and selfhood. This thoughtful and ethical book analyses across a range of important discourses of suicide to present new approaches to understanding suicide in the context of gender, bodies, culture and subjectivity.' Rob Cover, University of Western Australia, Australia
