Subjectivities and Bio-socialities of Illness & Health
This research platform reflects the broad scope of research, teaching, and learning in the department related to concepts of health, the body, illness and ‘well-being’ and with the way that a diverse range of healing practices, including biomedical knowledge or technologies, are diversely defined and constituted. Collectively this research is both concerned with the ways in which different ‘subjectivities’ are constituted by or caught up in different health practices and with the way that broader social and/or biological parameters must be addressed in examining, understanding and intervening on real world health problems . Comprising five subsections that bring together different expertise from across the department, the platform reflects key interdisciplinary aims and goals. These subsections include:
a. “Inner Worlds”: Psychological and Psychiatric Anthropology
b. Personhood and the Body
c. Biosocial Perspectives, Biosociality and Genetics
d. Cultural Diversity Issues in Clinical Practice
e. Critical Medical Anthropology, Inequalities and Health Disparities
