1. Which is not a changing theme of Kearns and Moon in From medical to health geography: novelty, place and theory after a decade of change?

  • Theory- The newness of the ‘coming out’ into theoretical awareness by health geographers- the social-theoretic context of health and of health-related subject matter
  • Critical health geography: a rapidly changing set of ideas and practices within human geography linked by a shared commitment to emancipatory politics within and beyond the discipline
  • Time- over time new diseases develop and time is also used to refer to the spread of diseases
  • Place- The objective has been to show that ‘places matter’ with regard to health, disease and health care.

2. Which not a interconnection of self and other, in Cloke's Self other?

  • There is the conceptual and methodological complexity involved in encountering the other of the same, let alone the other of the other
  • There is the risk that in acknowledging our selves in our work, we become too self centred and too little concerned with political and other priorities in the world around us
  • Identities are often expressed through material things like food and can be researched through various methods including the recording of life histories and other interview based methods.
  • There is potential for losing our sense of otherness
  • There is a concern over the way in which we can sometimes privilege certain kinds of otherness without giving due attention to the need for sustained, empathetic and contextualised research under appropriate ethical conditions

3. What is not one of Brown and Duncan's ideas in Placing Geographies of public health?

  • Critical health geography: a rapidly changing set of ideas and practices within human geography linked by a shared commitment to emancipatory politics within and beyond the discipline
  • Space for new health geography? Foucalt’s writings do offer health geographers the space to explore in more detail the ways in which public health discourses are understood in particular contexts
  • Geographies of public health: public health is traditionally known as what we as a society do collectively to ensure the conditions in which people can be healthy
  • Critical new public health: recognize the role of external factors in shaping individual health related behaviours, located the solutions for achieving good health within the realm of individual choice
  • Replacement of a biochemical model of disease with a social model of health.

4. Which is not a feature of Clark, Understanding Communities?

  • Weakness of network approach
  • Eco-villages
  • Community
  • Communities and social networks
  • The strength of weak ties
  • The small world hypothesis
  • Social ties in a networked society

5. Which is not an idea of Philo's Animals, geography and the City- notes on inclusions and exclusions?

  • Animals, livestock, meat markets and slaughterhouses in the city
  • Their inclusion - 'human chauvinism' leading them to be ignored altogether or only researched in the context of their utility to human beings and regarded as a marginal 'social’ group of human communities- socio spatial exclusions
  • Natures otherness- If the zoo is a ‘space’, Adelaide Zoo is a ‘place’ which tells us about its own framing contexts of colonialism and post-colonialism, to which must be added an imperial network of animal trading
  • Particular attention is paid to 19th-century debates about meat markets and slaughterhouses, wherein can be detected a will to exclude livestock animals from cities such as London (medical and hygienic, organisational and moral)
