Event description
Association of Psychosocial Studies ‘Reading’ Conference 2019: The Psychosocial – Reflections and Developments.

About this Event

The APS conference 2019 will create an innovative space for developing the field of psychosocial studies. Our aim is to facilitate discussions grounded in the history of our field and to open up a space for developing its future.

The morning of each of the two days of the conference will be devoted to shared reading and discussion. Texts representing the diversity of psychosocial ideas will be selected by researchers, practitioners and activists (Ann Phoenix, Kate Kenny, Stephen Frosh, Paul Stenner, the Activist Researcher Collective, Ian McGimpsey, Candida Yates and others…) who will lead group discussions.

Each afternoon will offer a selection of one-and-a-half hour workshops/panels/symposia to facilitate creative engagement with new research, concepts and issues relevant to psychosocial studies.

There will also be scheduled spaces for group discussion and reflection. The conference agenda will be circulated in due course.

The conference fee includes tea and coffee for all breaks, with a wealth of options for lunches very nearby.
