Dear Colleagues

 

Please circulate to your academic and student networks.

We are planning a Pleasure and Health Colloquium. ​This colloquium invites contributions to the study of health-related pleasures.

 

Activities to promote health have had to pay attention so called ‘unhealthy behaviours’ concerning, for example, tobacco and alcohol use, food choice and sexual activity.  A range of interventions have been developed in an attempt to change such behaviours.

Globally and at many times in history, instances and rates of suicide have been hugely symbolic resources for making statements about society. The key goal of this symposium is to investigate the links between suicide and socio-political crisis, at macro and micro levels. We seek to test psychological, psychiatric, sociological and historical theories about how dramatic socio-political change is internalised by individuals.
