II Conference. Gender and Health in Global, Transnational, and Historical Perspectives
Thursday, October 14, 9 AM-5 PM
Zoom Webinar. Please register at https://myumi.ch/2D2lP
Free and open to the public.
Few would disagree that gender matters for understanding health, healthcare delivery, and health-related policies, particularly as gender intersects with other social and geopolitical categories in generating inequalities and inequities in disease, mortality, access to health care, and so forth. Most observers are also very aware that gender is critical to understanding the many social and environmental determinants of health, such as economic development, access to clean air and water, the impact of climate change, access to education, among others. Yet we still have much to learn about the relationship between gender and health across varying geographic and temporal contexts, such that we might be able to grapple with the relationships of gender and health within a global or transnational perspective or to understand the historical underpinnings of these relationships.
This interdisciplinary and geographically wide-ranging conference aims to bring together scholars from public health and the humanities, from the medical sciences and the social sciences, whose areas of research will help us consider past and present relationships of gender and health.
Funded in part by five (5) Title VI National Resource Center grants from the U.S. Department of Education.
