SHI CfP of interest to STS colleagues

Hi all,

Apologies to those who've received this via other mailing lists.

Ros Williams and I are co-editing the next Sociology of Health and Illness
monograph. The SHI monograph is both an online special issue (published
'online first' so no wait for physical publication) then printed as an edited
book. You can read more about the SHI monographs
here. We welcome involvement from STS colleagues.

The full CfP is attached, but below is its focus:

methodological politics of contemporary sociological research into health and

If anybody has any interest in contributing, please do submit an abstract, or
get in touch if any questions. We'd appreciate you forwarding this to any
other interested people too, or any of your PhD students who may be nearing a
position to publish in a relevant area and be interested in the opportunity.
