Celebrating the Legacy
Medical sociology: The next 50 years

We are pleased to announce the call for papers for our 50th anniversary conference. We welcome abstract submissions for oral presentations, poster presentations, and special events structured around the streams listed below. We welcome papers reporting empirical research findings as well as those that are more theoretical in orientation. We also welcome papers presenting ‘work-in-progress’ and those testing out new and exciting methodological approaches to research in the sociology of health and medicine. Following positive feedback, Pecha Kucha will continue at the 2018 conference, providing there are at least six presentations. Please note that presenters will be able to present only one paper at the conference, although they may be authors on more than one.

In recognition of our 50th anniversary, there will be three plenary sessions at the 2018 conference. The opening plenary will be given by Professor Lesley Doyal (University of Bristol) and the closing plenary will be given by Professor Jonathan Gabe (Royal Holloway).In addition, on Thursday 13th there will be a panel plenary with a focus on Inequalities with keynote papers from Professor Ellen Annandale (University of York), Professor Graham Scambler (University of Surrey) and Professor Hannah Bradby (Uppsala University).

Please note, the 50th anniversary conference is non-residential. If you require accommodation while at the conference please book this independently as this year’s accommodation it not available via the BSA.
