Abstract Submission

Abstract submission will open in January 2019.

We are pleased to announce the call for papers for our 51st 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 2019 conference, providing there are at least 6 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.
