Call for Papers

The V Seminar on Social Vulnerabilities and Health (III International) has as its theme: "Work, mental health and social integration: vulnerabilities and transitions in times of uncertainty". Its objective is to discuss issues associated with Mental Health and Work, against the background of the need for Social Integration of people or groups experiencing times of uncertainty caused by situations of vulnerability, accentuated by instability in the political, social or health context.
In this edition, back to face-to-face mode, but keeping some sessions online, we have national and foreign speakers for the different thematic panels that constitute it. It is expected that the quality of the invited speakers will increase the participation of authors, national and international, with free communications in the thematic areas of the seminar, increasing the sharing of experiences and knowledge that this seminar has provided since the first edition.
This seminar is conceived as a space for interdisciplinary debate between History, other Social Sciences and Health, on the issues in question, their actors and the social and political intervention around them. We therefore invite researchers and other professionals from various areas of knowledge, national and foreign, to participate in order to share their research and/or intervention practices in this event.
All complete works, after review, will be published in an e-book corresponding to the book of minutes. These works can be sent after the seminar (see dates).
