'Health and the Environment' Reading Group
In this virtual reading group co-organised with the Geographies of Health, we would like to provide a forum for students, early career and senior researches to discuss the idea of how the environment gets under our skin when it comes to health disparities and inequalities, and how individuals can negotiate and navigate those dynamics. We would like to ask how individuals and collectives come to embody the socio-material affordances of the environments we live in and to what effects. We will base this discussion on two articles that from different perspectives bring together reflections on the unequal effects of urban segregation on people's health.
