Emily McNutt Yue is currently studying for her PhD in “Migrant Suicide” at the University of Edinburgh. She utilises critical suicide studies, critical mental health studies, critical race studies and decolonial praxis to question the decontextualized “globalised” version of suicide that has been dominant for the last century. Instead she seeks to turn the lens back on “Suicidology” – the authorship of suicide by Western scientists and medical professionals – to situate it as a cultural practice informed by a limited and limiting lens of privilege. In doing so, she hopes to make a case for more intersectional suicide reporting and research
