Sheila KThe Sheila Kitzinger Programme at Green Templeton College honours the life and builds on the work of the social anthropologist Sheila Kitzinger (1929-2015). Her comparative research blended intense immersion in different communities, participant fieldwork and strong clinical knowledge to advocate evidence-based decisions on medical, legal and social change.

Her practical and policy work ranged over a broad range of issues touching the human rights of prisoners, refugees and others marginalised by society on pretexts of race, religion or poverty: but above all she was a high profile feminist campaigner for the empowerment of women to secure for them freedom and choice in pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding.  

For more information on the many books she wrote over a span of fifty years and her areas of interest please click on this link

The Programme welcomes proposals from inside or outside the College to curate research seminars, policy lectures, debates or other events in the College on medical, legal and social issues.. The SKP Steering Group can offer some administrative and financial assistance to Curators and will work with them to maximise the public impact of evidence-based conclusions and their influence on policy and practice.

Initial ideas may be floated with the Convenor and an application form can be obtained from the Academic Projects Manager.
