Many thanks to our previous speaker, Prof Peter Phillimore (PDF: 67KB), for sharing his thoughts on a sociology of public health with reference to research projects in the Middle East. It was great to welcome so many colleagues to hear about Peterís recent work.
Our next seminar, a joint PEALS and Sociology event, takes place on May 13 with Richard Tutton discussing self-care as clinical labour (PDF: 68KB). Richard is Senior Lecture in the Department of Sociology and Centre for Science Studies at Lancaster. He has been researching the social life of genomic knowledge in relation to issues of subjectivity, identity, public involvement and commercial expectations. His monograph Genomics and the Reimagining of Personalized Medicine (Ashgate) was published in 2014. His talk offers a critical reflection on the re-positioning, since the 1970s, of self-care as a form of clinical labour in which patients take on tasks that were formerly the responsibility of health professionals.
Please join us for the last seminar of the series, followed by wine in the CLB 4th floor common room area.
