The ISIH conference is one of the few truly critical health conferences available to members of the CPN. For the last five years, members have met at the conference, and delivered talks. We now have the new conference announcement and the call for abstracts. (Note the closing date as the end of October).
We will look to another CPN get-together at in Lleida, and perhaps even organise another Salon. Here, though, are the details…
WHERE NEXT FOR CRITICAL HEALTH STUDIES? ADVANCING UNDERSTANDINGS OF HEALTH AND THE FUTURE OF HEALTH CARE
Contemporary concerns for health equity, people’s unequal access to affordable care, pervasive health governance, ethically questionable techno-medicine, and the growing influence of surveillance capitalism on people’s sense of self and other, are presenting a disturbingly nihilistic picture of society in the early 21st century.
Amidst more than half a century of resistance, activism, and ideological challenge, we continue to face the spectre of intensified and resurgent fascism, staggering wealth and grinding poverty, and a sixth species extinction. Within our contemporary context, the landscape of healthcare is changing, such that radical new ways of thinking about health and the relationships between health, bodies, and the world are now urgently needed. It is these new ways of thinking that are of key interest for this conference.In keeping with its core purpose, the 8th ISIH International Conference concerns itself with issues of health equity, health care systems and governance.
Abstracts are invited from those looking to engage in renewed conversations about and extend our understanding of critical health theory and practice within our contemporary world.
