Conference: PraxisAuril 2019

There has been an explosion in markets for digital and wearable technologies such as Fitbit and health apps. At the same time, and to some extent prefiguring this, there has been a growth in consumer markets for what might be thought of as more clinically orientated self-monitoring devices.
The symposium is part of a Leverhulme Trust Funded Research Project on ‘Knowledge, Care and the Practices of Self-Monitoring’. Focusing on health technologies in practice, the project aimed to understand how and why people self-monitor and to consider how this relates to knowledge, expertise and care.
Lunch will be provided on both days of the symposium. There is likely a chance for everyone to go out for a dinner on the 19th June, so please register your interest.
For full programme, please visit symposium webpage.
The symposium is organised by organisers from University of Sheffield, University of Sussex and University of Brighton; and funded by a Research Grant from the Leverhulme Trust.
There is no charge to attend, however registration is essential to reserve your place.
