Enhancing learning and teaching about mental health across the disciplines
Please use this thread to share information about research that you're engaged with.
Not, strictly speaking, a response to this - but people may be interested in Mental Health Nurse Academics UK's developing thinking on Research Priorities for Mental Health Nursing
Sorry I missed the chat, which I was very much looking forward to. Research interest- well I'm a part research students at UCLAN looking at psy-science as a colonizer through the medium of novels/literature, postcolonial theory and disability discourse. The characters iIm engaging with at the moment include Foucault (I'm such a fan-boy), Derrida (the bits I can decipher), Latour (yes another Frenchman) and moving into the poco (postcolonial for those in the know) shortly.
Just launching: Research into Narratives of Loneliness and Mental Wellbeing
please disseminate to colleagues and networks
1) Mental health service users with experiences of loneliness / or choice of solitary lifestyle
2) Mental health practitioners with experiences of clients who have loneliness as a presenting issue / or choice of solitary lifestyle
All interviews are confidential, may be face to face, telephone or Skype. Research continues for approximately 9 months April 2015 - December 2015.
Please contact Olivia Sagan for further information
Also: A call for contributions to an edited Anthology ' Narratives of Loneliness & Mental Wellbeing: Multidisciplinary Perspectives from the 21st Century' will be made late 2015, look out for it.
Thanks for posting this Olivia. Will disseminate. Best wishes, Jill
Hi Olivia. Just to add. . . Have turned this in to a blog post - that way it appears on the front page of the hub.
If you want to give it a push on twitter at any point, you can just open the blog posting and click on 'tweet this'. Hopefully others will do so too!
Thanks Jill, super.
Feminism and transgender, as social factions or collective subjectivities, have historically evaded, vilified or negated each other’s philosophy and subjectivities. In particular, separatist feminist theorists have portrayed the two ‘sides’ as consisting of mutually incompatible aims and subjectivities. These portrayals have worked to the detriment of both feminism and transgender.
Third Wave Feminism and Transgender considers what positive outcomes on society in general, and the law as it pertains to gender in particular, may emerge from the identification of and cooperation between third wave feminism and transgender. Challenging the ‘internecine exclusion’ between and within each faction, Davies shows that queer-inspired philosophical third wave feminism promises to be an inclusive social discourse providing a substantial challenge to mutual exclusion. Indeed, this book explores the span of maternal relations, including womanism, ethics of care and semiotic language and subsequently reveals how gender variant people can highlight the gendered operation of conventional ethics.
With a focus on Carol Gilligan and Julia Kristeva as key instigators of a philosophical third wave of feminism, this enlightening monograph will appeal to students and postdoctoral researchers interested in fields such as women’s studies, transgender studies and gender law.
Edward Burlton Davies has undertaken research at Lancaster and Manchester Metropolitan Universities. His research interests focus on third wave feminism, womanism, gender variance and reconstruction of gender law.
