Researching ethnicity, racism-related stress at work, and professionals' well-being
Date: 28 February 2008 Time: 12.30 - 4.35 p.m.
Location: MR 4, Conference Centre, Lancaster University, Lancaster
Not too long ago, the sociological study of ethnicity, racism and health was described to be in its infancy. This infant is now growing rapidly and has acquired the status of a distinct field of study. However, professionals' experience of racism at work and its impact on their health remains an under researched area both in the UK and USA.
The aim of this conference is to provide a forum for academics to share their research findings, experiences, and insights to encourage future research in this area.
