Researching Social Bodies: Self, Institutions and Societies. BSA Annual Conference 2020

Date(s)21-23 April 2020
OrganisationBritish Sociological Association
LocationBirmingham
DetailsContemporary explorations of bodies generate a broad range of potential thematic questions for this event. These include: What role are bodies playing in current disputes over who is a citizen in different global locations and who has the right to cross state boundaries? Does the concept of the ?social body? retain validity in contexts of fragmented identities and fractured ties to the state? Looking at issues such as disability and age, how important are bodies as vehicles for citizenship rights and welfare entitlement? What do contemporary disputes over gender and the body say about the intersection of medical, scientific and political classifications in establishing legitimate bodies?? In what ways do bodies play into intersectional dynamics of inequality and marginalisation? How important are bodies in understanding some of the costs of long-term austerity?

Dementia 2020. The Final Review

Date(s)28 April 2020
OrganisationGovConnect
LocationLondon
DetailsIn 2015 the Prime Minister launched his Challenge on Dementia 2020, which set out to build on the achievements of the Prime Minister?s Challenge on Dementia 2012-2015. The Implementation Plan published in March 2016 outlined how the 50 commitments set out in the Challenge would be met, ensuring that England becomes the world-leader in dementia care, research and awareness by 2020. The plan provided more detail on how these commitments, across the four core themes of risk reduction, health and care, awareness and social action, and research would be met. For the last 4 years, Govconnect?s Dementia 2020 series of conferences ('16, '17, '18, '19) have allowed government departments, arms-length bodies, the NHS and local authorities, research institutions, and the charity and voluntary sector to hear from senior leaders from many of the key partner organisations involved in the 2020 Challenge. This last event in the series will provide the opportunity for a conclusive review of the 2020 strategy, and an assessment of the forward steps that have been made in the journey to transform dementia care, support and research.
