New AHSS research on young people with asthma

Dr Lee Monaghan recently published an article with Jonathan Gabe (Royal Holloway) in Social Science & Medicine. The article, entitled ‘Embodying health identities: A study of young people with asthma’ has free access until July 4th and can be read at this link.

Questions posed in the article include: how important is the body in our understandings/experiences of health? How are everyday definitions of health and self embodied despite chronic illness, and how do social relations influence these interpretations? Mindful of such questions, this paper draws on a qualitative study of mild to moderate asthma among young people in Ireland.
