Alcohol Occasionals 2021 – Call for speakers/proposals

*** Please note: We are no longer accepting new submissions ***

The 2021 SARN/SHAAP Alcohol Occasionals will be based on the theme of inequalities. This could include alcohol research regarding: deprivation; gender inequalities; COVID-19 and inequalities; BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) communities; progressive vs. regressive alcohol policy; the homeless (including Managed Alcohol Programmes). 

We are interested to hear from researchers from any discipline who wish to share their findings with an audience made up of fellow researchers, practitioners, policy-makers and the general public. We would particularly welcome presentations from new and early career researchers and/or international speakers. We envisage these events will all take place online.

Dates (all 12:30pm-2pm): Wednesday 20 January / Thursday 25 February / Tuesday 30 March / Wednesday 28 April

If you would like to present or have a suggestion for a researcher you would like to see present, please email c.graham@rcpe.ac.uk

Speakers should provide a short proposal (max. 300 words) and an indication of their availability.
