3.1 What makes a nation, a state or a nation-state?

Why do England, Scotland and Wales take part in the Six Nations rugby championship alongside Italy, Ireland and France? Are they all ‘nations’? What do we mean by calling them ‘nations’? The nation has become one of the most contested concepts of our times. Scholars, politicians and political activists present different definitions of the nation, usually focusing on a variety of cultural, political, psychological, territorial, ethnic and sociological principles.

Men, Women & Health - New approaches to research and theory for improving health and health care
Men’s and women’s health have tended to be treated in rather stereotypical ways – as if all men are careless about their health, simply by virtue of their masculinity; and women’s health, when it comes down to it, is all about their gynaecology. This lecture will introduce the radically new approaches to gender and health being taken by the Centre for Men’s Health and the Feminism and Health Research Group at Leeds Metropolitan University.
