The Smoking Interest Group (SIG) was established at Durham in October 2010 and aims to use insights from the humanities and social sciences to develop a more nuanced understanding of the experience of smoking and the reality of smokers’ lives. SIG is located in the Centre for Medical Humanities at Durham University and is led by Professor Jane Macnaughton (School of Medicine and Health) and Dr Andrew Russell (Anthropology Department).

The inaugural SIG symposium on September 21 is designed to establish a dialogue with practitioners and policy-makers in the field of smoking cessation and to explore possible future collaborations with researchers working in similar areas. Registrations have now closed, but if you are interested in finding out more about SIG, you can download the SIG Symposium Programme (2.1MB), review previous blog posts or contact Jacky Pankhurst.
