CALL FOR PAPERS:

We're looking for contributions to our panel on "Chronic disease, toxicity, protection and care in Africa and the Global South", at the "CHRONIC LIVING" Conference, Copenhagen, April 23-25, 2020. The deadline for abstract submissions is November 1st.
(more information about the conference: https://vital.ku.dk/activities/conference-chronic-living)

Panel abstract: https://medialib.cmcdn.dk/medialibrary/95F5D237-C347-4D4B-BBA7-BEA53D7AB316/46C5488E-FDD5-E911-8436-00155D0B0940.pdf

Cancer and other chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension have become increasingly visible as "matters of concern" across the Global South. In East Africa, for example, many extended families have personal experiences with chronic disease. Media outlets regularly report on cancer statistics and the experiences of cancer and diabetic patients, the high costs of treatment, the scarcity of diagnostic tools and expertise, and the medical tourism of middle-class patients seeking treatment in India. Meanwhile concerns about the links between lifestyle, diet, environmental pollution and disease are becoming more audible and visible. As government regulation and protection measures are both limited and piecemeal, the onus is on individuals to protect themselves and their families. Newspapers regularly run health supplements with information and advice on diet and prevention in relation to what are called "lifestyle" diseases and the dangers of exposure to toxins and harmful chemicals. Whatsapp and facebook groups share information circulated on the internet about cancer prevention and treatment, stories about food, water and air pollution, and harmful chemicals in agriculture and medicines, along with advice about purchasing drinking water and cultivating organic gardens. While access to knowledge as well as capacities for protection are clearly mediated by class and purchasing power, in African countries, as in other parts of the world, there is heightened awareness that toxic environments expose everyone, irrespective of lifestyle and socio-economic status.  This panel welcomes papers that address these matters of concern and distributions of harm, and the tentative and exploratory practices of knowledge (production), protection and care being pursued by individuals and families, patient associations, farmers and citizens, governments and scientists as they confront and engage with chronic disease both within and across national boundaries. We welcome papers from beyond the African continent and the synergies these may open up.

Submission and conference details: https://eventsignup.ku.dk/Chronic-Living/welcome.html
