Critical Approaches series edited by New Zealanders


Critical Approaches series edited by New Zealanders

Massey health psychologists Professor Kerry Chamberlain and Associate Professor Antonia Lyons will act as series editors for an important new series of health texts Critical Approaches to Health by major UK publisher, Routledge.

As editors, they will commission and edit a series of inter-disciplinary texts that will present critical thinking on significant health issues for researchers, practising health professionals and postgraduate students in health-related disciplines.

“We are very excited to be taking up this initiative as it relates well to our research agendas in the Critical Health Psychology Group at Massey,” says Professor Chamberlain.

“This will be the first major book series that will specifically consider health issues from a critical perspective. We plan to solicit texts that cover a diverse range of health topics and to have a strong stable of leading international authors contributing.”

The international series will take a wide-ranging approach to health, involving issues such as gender and health, obesity, medicalisation, palliative care, the use of health technologies, and the health issues of migrants and other marginalised groups.

Each volume in the series will provide a critical approach and will be relevant to students and practitioners across the social sciences.

Professor Chamberlain and Dr Lyons are authors of the major critical health psychology text Health Psychology: A Critical Introduction (Cambridge) and their research in critical health psychology has been published in a wide variety of international peer-reviewed journals.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
