Since the 1970s, public health research has shown a renewed focus on the social determinants of health. A focus on the social or ‘upstream’ determinants of health suggests the value of developing sociological analyses. My research applies a sociological imagination to public health science to develop an understanding of the interrelationship between, on the one hand, individual experiences and, on the other, societal arrangements and social position. This research is critical because a public health science oriented towards equitable improvement of people’s lives will require attending to the connections between health and their social contexts.
