Call for Papers: session on "Social Networks and Health Inequalities"


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.

Session organizers:
Andreas Klärner, University of Hamburg, Dept. of Social Economics, Germany
Sylvia Keim, University of Rostock, Institute of Sociology and Demography, Germany

Please submit your abstract by 31 March 2015 at 17:00 GMT using the following link to the conference's abstract submission system: http://insna.org/sunbelt2015

Please limit your abstract to 250 words. The oral presentation is scheduled for 20 minutes.
When submitting your abstract, please select “Social Networks and Health Inequalities” as session title in the drop down box on the submission site. To be extra sure please put a note in the "additional notes" box on the abstract submission form that states Sylvia Keim and Andreas Klärner as the session organizers.
