This interdisciplinary symposium will bring together researchers working on diverse aspects of health and welfare. The one-day workshop is designed to showcase ongoing research by postgraduates and early career researchers, in order to promote academic exchange and future collaboration. Dr Monica Greco, senior lecturer in Sociology at Goldsmiths University of London, will give a keynote address.

The Health and Welfare Research Group is a graduate-faculty research group at the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH). From an interdisciplinary and comparative perspective, the group studies 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 contemporary practice of healthcare and the implementation of welfare policy.


The Symposium will focus on the three themes which have been explored in the Health and Welfare programme of reading groups and seminars for 2010-11.

These are:
Health Behaviours ~ Therapy Culture & Therapy Criticism ~ Intervention
