Description

Food for thought: Loneliness

Date: Friday 28 February 2020

Time: 12.00 - 13.00

Venue: Grove Diner, Cornwall House, Streatham Campus

Event Information

'Food for Thought' is a series of 'anti-lectures': free, relaxed events where you can buy something to eat from the Grove Diner and engage (as much or as little as you like) with academics' pioneering research in an informal, student-centred environment.

Join us for a session of intellectual and culinary nourishment in the Grove Diner between 12.00 - 13.00 on Friday 28 February.

Following the Guild's wellbeing week in January, our first session focuses on Dr Fred Cooper's research on loneliness.

After Fred's talk, there will be a chance to talk to academics about your own ideas and thoughts around loneliness.

If you're interested in learning more about research in this area, (or even thinking about a PhD or Masters study), this is a great chance to talk your ideas through informally, over food (available to purchase from the Grove Diner).

Please note: we are not providing free refreshments at this event.

Biography

Fred is a researcher and historian, working on past and present relationships between loneliness, culture, gender, the social and psy sciences, public health, feminism, and environment. Completed in 2018, his PhD research was a genealogical exploration of medical discourses on women’s work/life balance in the mid twentieth century, as part of the Wellcome-funded project Lifestyle, Health and Disease: Changing Concepts of Balance in Modern Medicine. In attempting to understand the discursive heft that loneliness had in specific post-war anxieties about domesticity and lifestyle, far too many questions were left unanswered: hence the nature of his current work.
