Indigenous and sociological knowledges: Meeting points for health equity

Health sociology recognises that health is holistic, as do Indigenous people. We are pleased to announce ‘Yuwinbir’, a Special Issue of Health Sociology Review on Indigenous and sociological knowledges: Meeting points for health equity.

Yuwinbir means ‘this way’ in the language of Wiradjuri peoples, from central NSW, Australia.

Health Sociology Review seeks articles from Indigenous authors and their colleagues internationally, with the aim of identifying and guiding meeting points between Indigenous knowledges and sociological approaches to understanding health equity.

We seek articles that consider health equity for Indigenous communities rather than individual health issues. Contributions are welcome on topics including social determinants of health and wellbeing, power and empowerment, racism, diversity across age, ability, gender, sexuality, identity and location, cultural safety, decolonising methodologies, sociologically informed program evaluations and theoretical developments.
