Geographies of Health and Wellbeing (GoHWell)
GoHWell comprises researchers in the Department of Geography concerned with the ways in which health and wellbeing may both constitute and result from inequalities in wealth, health, living conditions and life-chances.
Although all GoHWell researchers are based in the Department of Geography, many work within The Institute of Hazard, Risk and Resilience (Lower Mountjoy, Durham), the Centre for Medical Humanities and / or the Wolfson Research Institute (Queens Campus, Stockton). The cluster is therefore very inter-disciplinary and cluster activities occur across both sites. Similarly, GoHWell staff deliver undergraduate and postgraduate modules on health and wellbeing across both campuses. The cluster has a lively external and internal research seminar series. These events take place at both campuses and are advertised open to academics, practitioners, and policymakers with an interest in GoHWell issues. The cluster also organises a Researcher Reading Group for postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers.
For further information on the activities of this cluster, please contact the cluster convenor: Dr Jesse Proudfoot.
