Ethnographies and Health

An early-career workshop

Keynote speaker: Dr.Tiago Moreira, Durham University

Discussants: Prof.Judy Green & Dr.Simon Cohn, LSHTM

This two-day workshop for early-career researchers will focus on the intersection of ethnographic engagements with health (welcoming broad interpretations of both ‘ethnography’ and ‘health’). We will critically engage with ethnography as a practice, methodology, and theoretical orientation, and will debate our methodological choices and the knowledge(s) they produce, across multiple social science disciplines and their attentions to ‘health’. We hope to establish a network for early-career researchers through which methodological and disciplinary debates on our uses of ethnography/ies in health-related research can be extended.

‘Ethnographies & Health’ is organised by Sarah Milton, Emma Garnett, Joanna
Reynolds and Judy Green, and will take place at the London School of Hygiene &
Tropical Medicine, 15-17 Tavistock Place, London WC1H 9SH on 1st and 2nd
October, 2015.
