BODY WORK IN HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE

Call for Papers

BSA Ageing Body and Society Study Group Conference: Body Work in Health and Social Care

British Library Conference Centre,London

Tuesday 6th September 2011

Supported by the SHI Foundation and the British Library.

 

This day conference seeks to extend and deepen interest in the concept of ‘body work’ – understood here as work focusing on the bodies of others, typically undertaken in a paid context. As such it is a component in a range of occupations in health and social care, and beyond. We invite abstracts for papers that address the relevance of ‘body work’ to the sociology of health, illness and care, and to policy debates in these areas. Research on body work and ageing, including the experience of both providers and recipients of body work, is particularly welcome. We are also keen to include papers that draw comparisons with other areas of work such as personal services like hairdressing or sex work. Papers addressing methodological issues in studying body work (including, for instance, ethical questions, or the use of visual representations) are also welcome.

Topics of interest include:

  • The transformation and discipline of the body through health, care, and death work
  • The role of gender, class and racialisation on constructions of body work and body work interactions
  • The temporal and spatial organization of body work
  • Recruitment and training for body work and the embodied practitioner
  • Emotion, touch and reflexivity
  • Power, intimacy, and vulnerability
  • Dirty work and abjection
  • Formal and informal resistance by practitioners or patients or clients
  • The political economy of body work provision and its transformation over time

The Conference is organised by the BSA Ageing, Body and Society Study Group and supported by the Sociology of Health and Illness Foundation. It marks the publication of the recent Special Issue of Sociology of Health and Illness and the forthcoming monograph Body Work in Health and Social Care.  see (http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/shil.2011.33.issue-2/issuetoc).

Co-ordinators: Professor Julia Twigg (Kent), Dr Carol Wolkowitz (Warwick), Dr Rachel Cohen (Surrey) Dr Sarah Nettleton (York), and Dr Wendy Martin (Brunel).

Abstracts for papers and posters: max 250 words should be submitted by 27 June 2011 online at http://bsas.esithosting.co.uk/public/abstract/eventAbstract.aspx?id=EVT10136. Acceptance confirmation by 12 July. Programme online from 22 July.

Registration:  £45 BSA members, £85 non-members, £35 postgraduates. Fee includes buffet lunch, refreshments and wine reception in the early evening. Online registration at www.britsoc.co.uk/events/ageing. For further information email conference@britsoc.org.uk

Join the Ageing, Body and Society Study Group: The group organises seminars, workshops conferences and other events. New members, including students, welcome. Information on how to join: http://www.britsoc.co.uk/specialisms/AgeingBodyandSociety.htm

Evo Morales

BOLIVIA UNDER MORALES

Dear Reader,

Latin American Perspectives is pleased to announce the upcoming release of a dual special issue,

“Bolivia Under Morales”

ISSUE EDITORS: BENJAMIN KOHL & ROSALIND BRESNAHAN

Part 1 Available May 1, 2010
CONSOLIDATING POWER, INITIATING DECOLONIZATION

Part 2 Available July 1, 2010
NATIONAL AGENDA, REGIONAL CHALLENGES, AND THE STRUGGLE FOR HEGEMONY

The 2005 election of Evo Morales as the first indigenous President of Bolivia was a watershed not only for Bolivia but for the all of the Americas. The breadth of the political, economic, social, and cultural changes envisioned in the “decolonization” advocated by the MAS (Movement toward Socialism) movement headed by Morales places Bolivia at the forefront of social change in Latin America. As Morales begins his second term, Latin American Perspectives presents a broad-ranging collection of articles from leading Bolivian, U.S. and other international theorists and scholars that offer multiple perspectives on the rise of the MAS, its program for the decolonization of Bolivia, and the conflicts engendered by this struggle for social transformation.
