One thought on “Wellbeing debates and seminars January – March 2015

  1. We also have a couple of seminars in 2015 and a conference, that some readers may be interested in. Our ESRC funded seminar series ‘The Politics of Wellbeing’ is looking to define and develop the contribution of the politics discipline in relation to wellbeing. So far we have held seminars on the research agenda; methodologies, evidence and policy relevance; and governance and public policy. The series has not only brought politics into dialogue with other disciplines but also stimulated debate between academics and policy-makers.

    We have a seminar on Political Economy and Wellbeing 30 January 2015 in Sheffield and our final seminar, on Political Theory and Wellbeing, 17 April 2015 in Newcastle. We also have our end of seminar series conference on 17 July 2015 in Sheffield. The call for papers for the conference is now open (deadline for 250 word abstracts is 27 February 2015). For more information on the series, seminars, and conference please visit our website http://politicsofwellbeing.group.shef.ac.uk/ or follow us on twitter @WellbeingPol
