THeSP is hosting a series of workshops that aim to explore how social scientists theorise, frame and understand what is happening in healthcare and the social practices surrounding it. If you would like to attend these workshops please RSVP to: Chrissy Buse:

Date: 21 May 2014, 10:00 – 12:00 pm Location: Baines Wing (2.37), School of Healthcare We are delighted that Arthur Frank has accepted an invitation to lead a workshop for PhD students in the School of Healthcare.  This will be of interest to PhD students who are interested in qualitative research methods, narrative inquiry, ethics, identity, and the illness experience.

Date: 19 May 2014 This workshop will explore the intersections of affect and technology focusing on technologies’ roles in producing, mediating and constraining embodied feelings and bodily practice.  A series of empirical papers will consider how a range of technological artefacts, systems and processes operate in relation to particular social actors, including patients, scientists, healthcare practitioners, academics, athletes, prisoners and consumers.

  Date: 17 March 2014 The agenda for the THeSP AGM includes:

  • Reviewing the activities of the Centre
  • Discussion of future plans
  • Election of Director, Deputy Director and Committee
