Suicide, Surveillance and Intimacy in Military Life
Servicemember suicide is regarded by both military leaders and the American public as an urgent mental health and public health problem. This talk based on fieldwork at the U.S. Army’s Ft. Hood in central Texas does not describe the act of suicide itself, but how ideas about suicide show up in soldiers' talk and feelings and in institutional dimensions of everyday life in the military. Army efforts to parse the causes of suicide and aggressive, anticipatory monitoring of “risky” behavior believed to be associated with it both loom large in soldiers' experience. These efforts come to shape how soldiers understand their own mental and emotional distress, that of their comrades, and their relationship to commanders, health care providers, and the Army as a whole. While suicide is typically imagined as a profoundly individualized dysfunction, this talk addresses some of the ways that its "social life" can be understood on subjective, interpersonal, and institutional levels, frequently as a reflection of Army efforts to more efficiently monitor and control the lives in its charge.
