About AfterNow – an enquiry into the future of public health by Glasgow Unviersity.
Western civilisation has conquered great health perils in the past. But the peculiarly modern malaise seems resistant to treatment. Obesity, depression, addiction, loss of wellbeing – these are issues which sap the resources and spirit of modern practitioners. The AfterNow Project seeks to trace the development of our current situation. In six 5-minute introductory videos – backed up by a dozen 10-minute audio podcasts and over 30 short papers – we unpack the ideas which shape and limit contemporary responses... and look to a brave new future for public health.
