Gendhi Scientific Advisory Board Meeting – January 25 and 26, 2024

The Gendhi Scientific Advisory Board met for the first time on Thursday, January 25th and Friday, January 26th, 2024 at the Paris School of Economics, in the presence of the Gendhi team.

It is composed of:

  • Corey Abramson, Associate Professor of Sociology, University of Arizona
  • Claudine Burton-Jeangros, Professeur ordinaire de sociologie, Université de Genève
  • Tarani Chandola, Professor of Medical Sociology, University of Hong Kong
  • Maarten Lindeboom, Professor of Economics, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam
  • Anne Mc Munn, Professor of Social Epidemiology, University College London
  • Owen O’Donnell, Professor of Applied Economics, Erasmus Rotterdam
  • Sarah Richardson, Professor, of the History of Science and of Studies of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Harvard University
  • Janet Shim, Professor of Sociology, University of California San Francisco

The first afternoon was devoted to the presentation of the project. The principal investigators highlighted the research questions and work carried out along the conceptual cascade model: from socialization to health during childhood to medical care, from the embodied health to aging.

During the second afternoon, members of the Scientific Advisory Board were invited to present the main challenges in studying social health inequalities in their discipline and their country, and then to provide recommendations for addressing the main challenges of the Gendhi project.

Discussions were rich and convergent, focusing primarily on the gender lens and intersectional approach, the conceptual cascade model and causality, as well as the academic and non-academic impacts of the project.
