Call For Papers - Relational Approaches To Social Class: Beyond "SES" And "Gradients"

Deadline October 1, 2010

An upcoming special issue of the International Journal of Health Services will be devoted to relational approaches to social class, a theoretical approach that goes beyond simple ranks of social attributes (income, status) by focussing on social relations of production (e.g., employer, worker, manager, supervisor, the class process).

This special issue seeks papers that advance the literature on social class in population health by addressing how relational approaches to social class can explain social inequalities in health. Empirical contributions will be preferred but theoretical and review papers may also be considered.

Contributions are sought where class can help explain health inequalities in areas such as health services, health policy, evaluation, chronic illness, mental health, welfare state, racial, ethnic, immigrant and gender inequalities.

The International Journal of Health Services is a peer-reviewed journal. All submissions should be sent to the email addresses of the guest editors below. Please include indication in your Cover letter that you wish the article to be considered for the "Special issue on Social Class."
