I don't think anyone has replied about my earlier post so i shall repeat it.


I am interested in medicine and doctoring so I would like maybe a Health and Medicine strand? This could include role plays and could also include a tie-in with E+p about moral issues etc. what do you think?

was just about to post a reply when I saw you'd posted it again... I think this is a great idea. There is a massive crossover with E&P - I studied a large module on Medical Ethics as part of my philosophy degree, so would be very interested in helping to get this one rolling, but I don't have any knowledge of the scientific (i.e. main!) aspects of medicine.
If you have any specific ideas about things you'd like to see happen in this area please let us know!
Thanks

I was thinking of in-world role plays because they would work well.

There could be about 2 or 3 doctors and a few patients who have to act out the symptoms of a certain illness. The doctors would have to diagnose the illness and suggest action (e.g Surgery)

We could also hold sessions with the E&P in Scholympia or another meeting place and just hold a focused debate/discussion about issues such as Resuscitation and Blood Transfusions (Jehovah's Witnesses etc..)

Depending how exactly the role-play was set up and carried out, I think this could be a very powerful use of the environment.

Well I didnt have any exact thoughts on how it could be set out - I thought maybe we could come up with a good idea between us.

Well-you could have a person who organises it, tells the patienty person what symptoms to display and then the doctors have to 'guess' what it is... possibly.... a little like a murder mystery kinda thing...  ???

Yeah maybe the illnesses could be a stomach ulcer - throwing up blood, abdominal pains etc..

Post your ideas!

Perhaps if the doctors don't know what it is to start with and have to diagnose it from the symptoms?

Hey, I'm a head of Geography who is happy to chair any geographical threads from coursework to general geology/ tectonics/ general physical geography stuff! (and may even entertain human at a push?) :)

Yeah that was the idea. Only the individual patient knows what their illness is - along with the person organising it.

hey what about human geography ....

hold on I will get my pith helmet

NOTE: the later is an allusion to the value laden geography and its role in depoliticising physical, social, political, cultural and economic dispossesion in the (neo)colonial age

That's a marevl of compressed allusion represented by a form of headgear.

Could somebody say a little more about the different types of geography? Volcanology and the depoliticising of dispossession appear on the face of it to be worlds apart. What is it that links the study of the two of them?
