Gender, Subjectivity, and “Everyday Health” in the Post-1945 World

Date / time: 11 January - 14 June, 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Gender, Subjectivity, and "Everyday Health" in the Post-1945 World

This online seminar series explores the question: What is the history of “everyday health” in the postwar world, and where might we find it?

Papers examine how gender, alongside class, ‘race’, and sexuality, mediated experiences of health and wellbeing; interrogate the reasons for differences in gendered experiences in different regions of the world; critically assess the concept of ‘everyday health’; and develop and share methodologies that allow us to write histories of subjectivity and embodiment from the bottom-up.

We are delighted that Professor Carol Tulloch will deliver a keynote lecture titled ‘… and breathe. Style narratives, composing a life and wellbeing’.
