Poverty, Entitlement and Welfare Policy

27 February 2008, 12:15 - 14:00


Reading Group


Part of the  Health and Welfare Research Group

From an interdisciplinary perspective, the Health and Welfare Research Group explores the malleable and sometimes recursive nature of knowledge about health, disease, and society. Members approach this topic comparatively, focusing on the construction and conceptualisation of human and social well-being in diverse historical periods and geographical areas. The group also considers the impact of these ideas on the practice of healthcare and the implementation of welfare policy. The group is open to anyone with an interest in exploring these issues and particularly welcomes postgraduate students and early career researchers.

All welcome. No registration required.
