Alcohol & Gender

'Men and Alcohol' seminar series 2019

NEW! SHAAP and the Institute of Alcohol Studies, London, are again hosting four seminars held in London and Edinburgh to investigate issues relating to men and alcohol. Each seminar will focus on a specific topic, with speakers invited to respond to pre-set questions. Each will be chaired by an expert in the field and is intended to stimulate debate, challenge perceptions and encourage participants to think about future research and policy priorities. The findings will be pulled together in a new report in 2020.

The events are free but registration is required.

'Women and Alcohol' seminar series 2017

In conjunction with IAS, SHAAP hosted a series of four seminars held in London and Edinburgh throughout 2017 to investigate issues relating to women and alcohol. Each seminar focused on a specific topic, with speakers invited to respond to pre-set questions. Each was chaired by an eminent academic and intended to stimulate debate, challenge perceptions and encourage participants to think about future research and policy priorities. 


The report 'Women and Alcohol: Key Issues' written by Victoria Troy and Dr Eric Carlin, pulls together the  findings from the seminars.

 

Partnership working

SHAAP funded the Infographics (see below) for Glasgow Caledonian University and University of Stirling’s research into alcohol and gender, which aim to highlight and challenge the stereotypes around gender and alcohol.

The campaign was launched publicly at the Scottish Parliament in March 2018 (right) with the support of MSPs Monica Lennon and Alex Cole-Hamilton, next to Eric Carlin, SHAAP Director, left.
