Call for Submissions - 2019 Biennial Conference of the International Society of Critical Health Psychology

The 11th Biennial Conference of the International Society of Critical Health Psychology (ISCHP) will be held in Bratislava, Slovakia on Monday to Wednesday, July 15-17, 2019 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Bratislava. Full details at www.ischp2019.sk

Held every two years, the ISCHP conference provides an opportunity to explore ongoing and emerging issues in critical research, critical theory and critical practice in relation to health and health care. As well as a growing body of critical health psychologists, it attracts a wide range of others, including health service providers, users and activists and students and scholars in a diversity of disciplines that take a critical orientation to health, illness and healthcare.

We work hard to make ISCHP conferences collaborative and welcoming, offering inspirational and high-quality presentations from critical health scholars from around the world and from a range of disciplines. However, the conference programme goes well beyond the usual to include a diversity of presentation formats and a great social programme. ISCHP is especially committed to encouraging creativity and debate, and to supporting students, and emerging researchers starting out in this field.

The ISCHP 2019 conference will be a three-day meeting and will include workshops alongside the academic programme. You can also take the opportunity to attend the Pohoda Festival (the “Glastonbury of Central Europe”) which takes place in the week before the conference.

We welcome submissions on any topic or theme that takes a critical stance on any aspect of health or health care. We are keen to receive submissions for symposia (of four 15 minute presentations), individual 15 minute oral presentations, Pecha Kucha and 5-Minute Challenge submissions, and e-Poster submissions, on any topic discussing and exploring critical work on health. The organizing committee especially welcome submissions in formats other than individual oral presentations. As well as an exciting academic programme there will be a lively social programme and preconference workshops.

Our keynote speakers will be Margaret Wazakili (Global Disability Watch, Malawi), Miroslav Sirota (University of Essex, United Kingdom) and Linda McMullen (University of Saskatchewan, Canada).

 Deadline for submissions for the conference are: 

31 October 2018 – for workshop proposals
31 January 2019  – for early abstract review for those who want to get a head-start with their travel arrangements
10 March 2019 – final deadline for submitting all forms of presentations
