BCHS Journal Club

Critical Public Health: Metaphor & Meaning

Monday 12/5 12:00PM - 1:30PM
4128 Public Health, Meeting Room

The Critical Public Health journal club seeks to spark critical and reflexive conversations with attention to deeper social and historical contexts, ‘unintended consequences’ of intervention and research, and dynamics of power. We will also seek to identify alternative frameworks to enact in research and practice. Interdisciplinary and open to all!

December readings:

Perlman, D. C., & Jordan, A. E. (2016). To neither target, capture, surveille nor wage war: On-going need for attention to metaphor theory in care and prevention for people who use drugs. Journal of Addictive Diseases.
                                                           and
Broyles, L. M. et al. (2014). Confronting inadvertent stigma and pejorative language in addiction scholarship: A recognition and response. Substance Abuse, 35(3), 217-221.
