In this open reading session we will collectively engage with one another and with a list of readings broadly organized around the theme of ‘critical health geographies’. Recognizing that many of us approach the study of health in ways that don’t always fit neatly into disciplinary boxes, we invite participants working with a wide range of methodologies, theories, and empirics, particularly, but not limited to, feminist, critical race, decolonial, queer, and/or dis-ability geographies.
This session is dedicated to seminar-style discussion of several texts (see below). Everyone is welcome, and we hope that session attendees will join the conversation as full participants. To this end, we encourage everyone to read the required texts in advance.
