Risk and Society Study Group Event
Friday 28 February 2014,
British Sociological Association London Meeting Room, Imperial Wharf

Risk in Health and Social Care: Politics, Theory and Practices

This study day will offer an opportunity for participants to focus on themes relating to risk in the broad field of health and social care practice, including the contribution of social theory to analysis and understanding of risk practices and their impact. We welcome abstracts that are broadly relevant to one or more of these themes. This includes theoretical papers that may be relevant in their application to the health and social care field, and also papers from other fields that contain useful insights, for example in terms of methodological approaches to researching risk. We welcome theoretical, methodological and empirical papers from any discipline.

Guidance on abstract submission: Please submit an abstract of no more than 250 words to Jo Warner by Friday January 17th 2014. We will advise you if your submission has been successful by the end of January.

The day will also offer opportunities for more general discussion about the study group¹s aims and objectives, and also ideas for future study day events. We plan to organise another study day event towards the end of 2014 and would like suggestions about possible themes.

Please note that we may also build on the event to develop a contribution to the new BSA book series. We will provide more details about this on the day.

Fees are £25 for Postgraduates, £35 BSA members and £40 for non-members. (registration fee includes lunch) Bookings received after 7th February 2014 incur a £10 late booking fee. More information is available for download here.

Organisers: Jo Warner, Christine McCourt, Jacqueline Davies, Mandie Scammell
