Your Research and Journalistic Media

While peer-reviewed scholarly journal publication is the goal of most researchers and scholars, you might also be attentive to the ways that you can bring your findings and work to a larger popular audience.

Journalists and other news media professionals are often interested in publicizing interesting research.

However, as John Oliver recently explained in his Last Week Tonight feature on scientific studies, the nuances of science are often lost on journalists (as well as their readers and viewers).

Inside Higher Ed editor Scott Jaschik offered some canny advice to researchers on how to work with journalists in his “Faculty and the Fourth Estate” (published by the AAUP in 2010).

What to do before a reporter calls (or before you call a reporter) is also the topic of a recent blog post on Tenure, She Wrote.

Inside Higher Ed: A Research Group of One’s Own

English novelist and essayist Virginia Woolf famously declared that a productive writing career required “a room of one’s own” and observed that historically women lacked such a room (as well as the uninterrupted time to use it).

Women academics may have the literal room but often lack room in their schedule because they tend to take on more service roles than men and spend less time on research, as reported in Inside Higher Ed.

However, women at Texas Tech and Indiana University are making room for research with faculty writing groups, which have been so productive that there has been a request for co-ed groups as well.

Seven Things Every Researcher Should Know About Scholarly Publishing

Alice Meadows and Karin Wulf writing for the Scholarly Kitchen (“What’s hot and cooking in scholarly publishing”) explain the ecosystem, “scholarly hygiene,” business models, peer review, metrics, tools, and licenses and copyright.

Making a Writing Group That Works

Writing for Inside Higher Ed‘s “Grad Hacker” feature, Travis Grandy discusses forming a writing group as a way of providing external accountability (i.e., outside the structures of courses and their assignments). Beginning with assessing where you work best (or don’t work best) and a sense of your personal writing process, he recommends the formation of a writing group with different variations on that theme.

Healthcare in motion: Mobility forms in health service delivery and access

Healthcare in motion: Mobility forms in health service delivery and access

Editors: Cecilia Vindrola-Padros (UCL), Anne E. Pfister (UNF), and Ginger A. Johnson (Anthrologica)

Healthcare in Motion will explore the diversity of mobility forms associated with healthcare. It will consider both mobility and healthcare as complex cultural and political processes, which are influenced by global policies and structures but are also shaped on the ground by individuals and their local communities. The focus on ground-level, subjective experiences of (im)mobility and access to healthcare will allow the authors in this volume to study and understand mobility as a social practice imbued with cultural meaning, thus gaining insight into the social, cultural, political, and economic processes that make mobility possible as well as those that restrict movement. The relationship between mobility and healthcare will be analysed critically by focusing on inequalities in healthcare access in order to highlight critical areas of (im)mobility, as well as areas of innovation where volume contributors are seeking to deliver healthcare to populations in need.

The edited volume will be submitted to Berghahn Books for consideration in their Worlds in Motion book series (series editor: Noel B. Salazar, https://www.berghahnbooks.com/series.php?pg=worl_moti). It will bring together authors from a wide range of disciplines who are working in multiple sectors (academia, public healthcare organizations, non-governmental organizations) and carry out research in a wide array of geographical contexts. We seek a diverse array of scholars and practitioners who will help contribute a range of theoretical, methodological and practical solutions to contemporary issues related to Healthcare in Motion.

The volume specifically seeks contributions to the following two thematic areas:

1) Delivering care to (im)mobile populations

What does it mean to deliver healthcare to populations who are (im)mobile due to emergency circumstances, geography, access issues (e.g. finance, transportation), etc.? What are the challenges of delivering healthcare services in a (im)mobile world?

Potential contributors to this section may be working with: refugee and displaced populations or within protracted humanitarian emergencies; difficult or hard-to-reach populations; disabled or elderly communities; etc.

2) Technologies of mobile healthcare

How is healthcare shaped by new technologies to deliver healthcare to (im)mobile and hard-to-reach populations? What new strategies and technologies are currently in use or are being tested and developed to provide healthcare services to (im)mobile and hard to reach populations?

Potential contributors to this section may be working to implement mHealth (mobile health) solutions in low or middle income countries; developing easy to use, open-source software for providing health services to immobile populations; creating (or utilising) mobile devices for community health workers who deliver care to hard-to-reach populations; using virtual platforms to deliver health services, etc.

Interested contributors must submit an abstract of 200-300 words electronically to Dr. Vindrola-Padros atc.vindrola@ucl.ac.uk by January 31, 2016. Authors of accepted abstracts will be notified by February 12, 2016 and will have until May 1, 2016 to submit a full manuscript, which will be peer reviewed for potential inclusion in the volume.

CFP: Broken Narratives and the Lived Body Conference

Call for Proposals: Broken Narratives and the Lived Body Conference
This conference will take an interdisciplinary approach to ‘broken narratives’, embodiment and the ‘lived body’. Contributions are invited from researchers in the social sciences, humanities, and in medicine. Contributors are invited to examine the topics outlined below, through theoretical, theoretically informed empirical research, and in relation (but not limited) to a range of psychiatric diagnoses, neurological illnesses and cognitive ‘impairments’; persons who are neurodiverse (e.g. who live with autism); psychological traumas; and life-threatening illnesses.
Abstract of 250 words, 5 keywords, and up to 100 word author bio is due by 30 November, 2015. Acceptance notice will be given mid Dec, 2015. Completed drafts of maximum 8,000 words are due by end of March, 2016.
