The theme of the next Yorkshire Medical Sociology group is space, place and design in relation to health and well-being. This may include the built environment, landscapes, architectural design, and interiors.

We are inviting abstract proposals for 10-minute paper presentations. We welcome papers addressing issues including: experiences of health and well-being in relation to place; design for health and social care environments; ‘therapeutic’ landscapes; place and networks of care. Submissions from early career researchers are particularly welcome.

A limited number of travel bursaries will be available to early career researchers and postgraduate students. Please include a request for a travel bursary with your abstract. The request should be a few lines summarising: 1) Your current research and broader research interests 2) How attending the event would be useful for you in developing your research.

Abstract length: 150-200 words
