Hannah Bradby Visiting Fellow, King's College London

Hannah Bradby’s research on how ethnicity and racism intervene in the social relations of health has been published in various journals including ‘Social Science and Medicine’ and ‘Sociological Research Online’.  She co-edits the journal ‘Ethnicity and Health’ and is the ‘Sociology of Health and Illness’ monograph series editor.

Hannah has taught both medics and sociologists at the University of Warwick since 2000, employing various representations of health, illness and suffering including written (memoire, letters, reportage, fiction, clinical notes, empirical research) and spoken forms (evidence from clinicians, patients and former patients, in various languages, and sometimes mediated by trained interpreters). She has worked on the core medical school curriculum and special study modules and has collaborated with students to publish books of their own sociological work, both written and photographic.

Building on observations by the late Meg Stacey (the first female professor at the University of Warwick) on medical sociology’s lack of attention to war as a public health problem Hannah co-edited (with Gillian Hundt) a collection entitled ‘Global Perspectives on War, Gender and Health’ (2010, Avebury). ‘Medical Sociology: An introduction’ (2009, Sage) seeks to interpret sociological criticism of medicine and insights into the experience of illness for medical students.
