A Symposium funded by the Wellcome Trust (Seed Award) Humanities Research Institute, University of Sheffield, 18-19 May 2018 Globally and at many times in history, instances and rates of suicide have been hugely symbolic resources for making statements about society.

This workshop emerges from an AHRC-funded project led by Professor Adrian Bingham (Department of History) entitled ‘Everyday Politics, Ordinary Lives: Democratic Engagement in Britain 1918-1992’.
