The Biosocial Research Network invites researchers from across domains who are interested in the intersections of the biological, social, cultural and political.
The intersection of life sciences, social science and humanities is emerging as an important trans-disciplinary space for understanding the complexity of the human body, human cultures, health and wellbeing, and the experience of being a person. Biosocial research has the potential to transform the way we think about the biological, the social and the cultural and bring radically new approaches to and insights into pressing concerns that span expert areas.
The significance of this interface is increasingly recognised, but researchers are only beginning to realise the potential of bringing together state-of-the-art findings from across domains or for trans-disciplinary biosocial research. The Biosocial Research Network will:
- act as a hub for connecting researchers from across disciplines
- offer opportunities to share ideas
- provide a forum for developing biosocial research agendas
- share biosocial research findings
- identify the usefulness of biosocial research findings for policy, professionals and the public.
The network is open to researchers located in any discipline, including arts, biological sciences, chemistry, criminology, cultural studies, disability studies, education, epigenetics, feminist and gender studies, humanities, neuroscience, new materialism, psychology,cience and technology studies, social policy, social sciences, sociology, systems biology.
