BSA Medical Sociology Group Annual Conference - Call for papers

British Sociological Association

Call for papers

Wednesday 10th - Friday 12th September 2014
Aston University, Birmingham

We look forward to welcoming you to our 46th Annual Conference.

We are pleased to announce Professor Arthur Frank University of Calgary and Dr.Tiago Moreira, Durham University have agreed to be our plenary speakers at the 2014 conference.

We welcome abstract submissions for oral presentation, poster presentations and symposia / special events structured around the stream which are listed below, however to accommodate increasing numbers of abstracts and to ensure more people have the opportunity to present and share their work with the medical sociology community, we will be trialling some new formats for oral papers during the 2014 conference.  This may include traditional formats such as round table discussions as well as more creative approaches, so presenters have the opportunity to discuss ideas ranging from initial thoughts through to completed studies. We would particularly encourage presenters wishing to present 'work in progress' to indicate this on their abstract submission. We look forward to providing you with more details about this in the coming months.
