Call for Submissions - 2019 Biennial Conference of the International Society of Critical Health Psychology

Wioletta Pugacewicz, 09.08.2018

The 11th Biennial Conference of the International Society of Critical Health Psychology (ISCHP) will be held in Bratislava, Slovakia on Monday to Wednesday, July 15-17, 2019 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Bratislava. Full details at www.ischp2019.sk

Held every two years, the ISCHP conference provides an opportunity to explore ongoing and emerging issues in critical research, critical theory and critical practice in relation to health and health care. As well as a growing body of critical health psychologists, it attracts a wide range of others, including health service providers, users and activists and students and scholars in a diversity of disciplines that take a critical orientation to health, illness and healthcare.

We work hard to make ISCHP conferences collaborative and welcoming, offering inspirational and high-quality presentations from critical health scholars from around the world and from a range of disciplines. However, the conference programme goes well beyond the usual to include a diversity of presentation formats and a great social programme. ISCHP is especially committed to encouraging creativity and debate, and to supporting students, and emerging researchers starting out in this field.

The ISCHP 2019 conference will be a three-day meeting and will include workshops alongside the academic programme. You can also take the opportunity to attend the Pohoda Festival (the “Glastonbury of Central Europe”) which takes place in the week before the conference.

We welcome submissions on any topic or theme that takes a critical stance on any aspect of health or health care. We are keen to receive submissions for symposia (of four 15 minute presentations), individual 15 minute oral presentations, Pecha Kucha and 5-Minute Challenge submissions, and e-Poster submissions, on any topic discussing and exploring critical work on health. The organizing committee especially welcome submissions in formats other than individual oral presentations. As well as an exciting academic programme there will be a lively social programme and preconference workshops.

Our keynote speakers will be Margaret Wazakili (Global Disability Watch, Malawi), Miroslav Sirota (University of Essex, United Kingdom) and Linda McMullen (University of Saskatchewan, Canada).

 Deadline for submissions for the conference are: 

31 October 2018 – for workshop proposals
31 January 2019  – for early abstract review for those who want to get a head-start with their travel arrangements
10 March 2019 – final deadline for submitting all forms of presentations
1 April 2019 – final deadline for submitting posters
Submissions and registration can be made at www.ischp2019.sk

CBSS Summer University 2018: Populism and Radical Politics, Across East and West, Right and Left 

Wioletta Pugacewicz, 13.04.2018


When: 9 June – 21 June 2018 
Where: Site 1 - Stockholm (Södertörn University) and Site 2 - Gdańsk (University of Gdańsk and European Solidarity Centre) 
How many credits: 7.5 ECTS Points 
For whom: Doctoral students within humanities or social sciences 
By whom: Centre for Baltic and East European Studies (CBEES) at Södertörn University, University of Gdańsk, European Solidarity Centre in Gdańsk and the Council of the Baltic Sea States (CBSS)


About:

In the last few years, populism has been on the rise in Europe, across East and West. In some countries the nationalist right-wing populist parties have gained power, whereas in others they have emerged on the fringes of mainstream politics. Xenophobic and outright racist movements are becoming more visible and vocal and seemingly threatening democracy. Yet elsewhere, left-wing movements are mobilizing against this development, arguing that there are other forms of populism: less reactionary, more inclusive and with the potential to reinvigorate democracy. Recent years have also seen a rise in women's and feminist mobilization against a current resurgence of "traditional values", anti-feminist backlash and authoritarianism. In light of this, is it safe to say that we live in a time of increased political polarization?

This and other topical questions will be the subject of lectures and discussions during the two weeks of the CBSS Summer University 2018 on two sides of the Baltic Sea, in Sweden and Poland.

 

The course “Populism and Radical Politics, Across East and West, Right and Left” deals with populism and radical politics across the political spectrum both theoretically and empirically. Particular attention is paid to the European post-1989 context within Baltic, Central and Eastern Europe, as well as the larger transnational and global cultural, economic and political developments within which these movements have emerged. The actual learning process will be enhanced by travel from Stockholm to the birthplace of Solidarity – Gdańsk, as well as teaching in action during guided tours and trips, small study groups and informal learning during leisure activities.


Some of the confirmed lecturers thus far are the following internationally renowned scholars:
·         Oliver Marchart (University of Vienna) 

·         Cecilia Sjöholm (Södertörn University) 

·         Mark Devenney (University of Brighton)

·         Elzbieta Korolczuk (Södertörn University)

Students interested in the topic and coming from our members or/and participating universities are welcome to apply for participation in the conference. Students from the BUP´s members' universities will, however, be given priority. The national BUP centres will be responsible for selecting a list of participants from the respective countries.
