Call for Papers for an organized session on "Social Networks and Health Inequalities"
at the XXXV Sunbelt Conference of the International Network for Social Network Analysis (INSNA), June 23–28, 2015 in Brighton, United Kingdom
This session intends to focus on the role of social networks for explaining health inequalities. We invite interdisciplinary approaches dealing with social network influences on health behaviors and outcomes. We encourage submissions that use different methods (quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods) and focus on health inequalities at different stages in the life course and/or different vulnerable groups. Theoretical and empirical work that connects life course and network dynamics is especially welcome.
