BSA MedSoc Yorkshire meeting October 29
Rose Bowl 263, City Campus, Leeds Beckett University (formally Leeds Metropolitan University) 29 October, 2014, 12:00-16:30
The British Sociological Association Medical Sociology group for Yorkshire was launched in February 2014 with an event that brought together researchers from across the region to discuss stimulating work conducted by well-established and more junior colleagues. To build on this successful first meeting the second event will take place in Leeds where attendees will hear about exciting work from a plenary speaker from outside the region (Professor Maggie Mort) and early career researchers based in Yorkshire. There will also be lots of time for networking with other researchers and to discuss the broad future direction of the group and more specific potential projects. This will be a great opportunity to meet with others with an interest in sociology of health and illness/medical sociology, to share ideas and help to build the local research community.
Who should attend?
The meeting is open to postgraduate students, academics and researchers. But we would also welcome anyone who has an interest in the sociology of health and illness.
