After her talk dealing with The politics of securing borders and the identities of disease in September, Rosemary addressed another key global health issue: Risks Unforeseen: the politics of Science, Blood and Global Health


The conference will start at 5pm at the University of Bordeaux (place de la Victoire amphitheatre Fabre)


Rosemary Taylor is a faculty member in Community Health and Sociology. Her areas of interest include: comparative historical study of disease and health policy; political sociology; qualitative methodology; comparative welfare states.


She is the author of articles on public health and comparative health policy, co-author of Local AIDS Policies and co-editor of Coops, Communes and Collectives (1979). Her current research has two foci: the first builds on interests in the development of sociological approaches to political problems. These have fed into collaborative work on the effect of cultural frameworks and social institutions on population health. The second compares US responses with those of the European Union and its member states to cross-border health threats (such as TB, pandemic influenzas, AIDS, and BSE), especially when their carriers are perceived to be migrants. She chairs the study group on The Health of Nations: Europe in Comparative Perspective.
