In April 2019, we ran our IReSH Spring Conference in Edinburgh, entitled Doing sexual health research in Scotland: collaboration, innovation & community participation? At this conference, we were pleased to feature a keynote lecture by Dr Peter Keogh, Lead for the Reproduction, Sexualities and Sexual Health Research Group at the Open University. Peter’s talk – The knowledge problem in reproductive and sexual health: filling the pedagogic space – explored the potential usefulness of an approach that blurs the lines between research and practice, problematises the notions of ‘evidence for’ or ‘evaluation of’ and thinks instead about ‘communities of knowledge production’ and ‘praxis’. Peter suggested that this approach has the potential to strike a better balance between the political and the technical dimensions of our work. We are now able to share this keynote by Dr Peter Keogh, and follow up discussion and welcome your comments and engagement with these ideas below this post, on YouTube and Twitter
One of the main aims of IReSH is to bring its members together to meet each other, share ideas and research, and to spark collaborations in relation to sexual health and BBV research. Over the past few years, we’ve run a number of different events to help make this happen.
We run conferences for IReSH members to present on research and practice, and to engage with and across the sector. Continue reading “What are IReSH Events?”
