York researchers invited to Critical Perspectives in Global Health workshop

Challenging the divide between academic and applied research, the Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research invites York University community members to attend and participate in the Critical Perspectives in Global Health workshop taking place Dec. 4 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Lunch will be provided.

Critical global health research is rooted in social science theory and methodology but extends beyond the academy to engage with global health actors in order to have a significant impact in global public health. During the workshop, researchers from across the University will have the opportunity to present their own work and discover each other’s in this area.

York University faculty and researchers are invited to prepare a brief “Five Minutes/Two Slides” presentation on any research project – current or planned – which takes this approach. Participants who wish to attend without presenting are also welcome.

Following the workshop, the Dahdaleh Institute will support the development of further research in Critical Perspectives in Global Health. Seed grants of up to $5,000 will be offered for current or planned research projects that are based at York University and contribute to one of the institute’s research themes: Global Health & Humanitarianism, Planetary Health, or Global Health Foresighting.

Community members interested in attending should register by Monday, Nov. 25 by 1 p.m. More information, including the event agenda and organizing committee, can be found at dighr.yorku.ca/event/critical-perspectives-in-global-health/.
