Jointly organised by King’s College London (KCL) and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), this new seminar series brings together critically-minded social scientists, public health experts and practitioners together to debate key areas of concern for global health today and reflect on how these should be approached and explored. The seminars are organised as a platform for social scientists working in the field to present and reflect on their current and planned research in discussion with the chair-discussant and the audience. More broadly, the aim of the series is to provide a forum to discuss emerging contradictions and frictions in global health research and policy as well as the challenges and opportunities these present to social scientific inquiry. Through open-ended and candid exchange on the experiences of working in the global health field, we seek to develop new avenues for critical thought in the social sciences and beyond.
We will launch the series with a special event on 6 December 2016, 4.30-6 pm, in the Jenny Roberts room at the LSHTM at 15-17 Tavistock Place, London WC1H 9SH.Professor Frank Kelly, from KCL, and Dr Emma Garnett, from the LSHTM, will present and dialogue about their work on air pollution, climate change and global health. Everyone is welcome!
