CFP: 3rd Annual Congress of NNMHR, University of Sheffield, 23-24 January 2020, Closing Date for Abstracts: 01 September 2019

Date:23-24 January 2020

Location:University of Sheffield

Closing Date for Abstracts: 01 September 2019

We are delighted to confirm that the 3rd Annual Congress of NNMHR will be hosted by the University of Sheffield, 23-24 January 2020. The theme for the conference is Experience, Medicine and Marginalisation, and the Call for Papers is now open. All details relating to submission of proposals can be found on the NNMHR Website. The last date for submission is 01 September 2019.

The conference aims to be a forum to interrogate and explore the notion of experience from multiple perspectives. The organisers hope to have a wide range of medical and health-related experience represented at the conference: patients and non-patients, medical practitioners, people involved in different ways in the institutions of medicine and health care. Recognising that the very category of experience can be normative, contributions are welcomed that focus on the politics of marginalised experiences, and/or the problems (ethical and practical) involved in ‘capturing’ such experiences. The issues in labelling certain kinds of experience as ‘marginalised’ and the power relations that sustain these inequalities are also welcomed as topics for analysis.

We are pleased to advise that five bursaries are available for postgraduate researchers (PGRs) and early career researchers (ECRs)*, covering accommodation and travel of up to £175. Applications for bursaries will be considered following the final selection of panels and papers (please indicate on the Google Form whether you would like to be considered for this bursary, which will prioritise those without current external research funding).

The Organising Committee of the 3rd NNMHR Congress are: Dr Annamaria Carusi, Dr Chris Millard and Prof Ian Sabroe, who are all based at the University of Sheffield.
