Research Conference NNHSH 2013 – Transformations of Health Practices and Health Policies in the Nordic Welfare States

24.04.2013 - 26.04.2013 | University of Copenhagen

Transformations of Health Practices and Health Policies in the Nordic Welfare States

Place & Time: University of Copenhagen, April 24-25, 2013

Deadline for abstracts: January 15th, 2013
Arranged by the Nordic Network for Health Research within Social Sciences and the Humanities

With the theme of the research conference of the NNHSH network we want researchers, both at doctoral and post-doctoral level, to reflect on how health practices and health policies in the Nordic Welfare States are being transformed and have been transformed in the past.

The conference aims at encouraging scholarly discussions highlighting the transformations of health politics in the Nordic countries and the consequences as observed and experienced by people in this context. Topics discussed can revolve around the role of governments in the furthering of transformations – be it regarding patient education, expectations of empowerment of the elderly in elderly-care, or negotiations about the right to biological parenthood. It can also be about peoples´ embodied, verbalized and negotiated responses to the changes taking place. Furthermore, any health situation does not only concern patients or other people in need of care or help, but it also includes family-members as care-providers, who may be drawn in to this role due to increasing expectations of kinship obligations and responsibilities.
We hope you would like to participate! Specify in the notification if you want to participate with or without paper.

If you want to submit a paper (in English, Danish, Norwegian or Swedish), submit a title and an abstract of no more than 1500 signs by January 15th to

Participation in the conference is free. Each participant must bear the cost of travel and subsistence. The organizers reserve the right to make a selection among the applicants.
