Critical Public Health: Metaphor & Meaning

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

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:
