Speaking and Listening: Making Meaning in ‘Everyday’ Health Experiences

About this Event

This event is part of the Body, Self and Family seminar series on Gender, Subjectivity, and "Everyday Health" in the Post-1945 World. This session consists of the following papers:

  • Yuliya Hilevych (University of Cambridge), Navigating Reproductive Health in Soviet Ukraine During the Cold War
  • Chelsea Saxby (University of Birmingham), ‘That familiar sting’: the U&I Club and Women’s Experiences of ‘Everyday’ Illness in 1970s Britain
  • Jill Kirby (University of Sussex), ‘… a problem that doctors have dodged for years’: Gender, Menopause, and Everyday Health

Chair: Kate Mahoney (University of Essex)

To find out more about these papers, and about the seminar series, see the Body, Self and Family website here.

This seminar series runs from January-June 2021 and asks: What is the history of ‘everyday health’ in the postwar world, and where might we find it? Across six months, participants will explore the history of gender, selfhood, and health from multiple perspectives, examining how gender, alongside class, ‘race’, and sexuality, mediated experiences of health and wellbeing; interrogating the reasons for differences in gendered experiences in different regions of the world; critically assessing the concept of ‘everyday health’; and developing and sharing methodologies that allow us to write histories of subjectivity and embodiment from the bottom-up.

We aim to ensure that this seminar series is fully accessible. If you have additional needs, please contact us at admin@bodyselffamily.org and we will do our best to ensure that you are fully supported.

Participants will be emailed with joining information five days before the event.
