Abstract:

Following the move to a ‘post–medical’ geography, a large amount of research has come to focus on public health issues. This paper explores these current geographies of public health and argues for the development of a more critical perspective. In particular, it draws on commentary that has emerged out of debates that have taken place within a body of literature usually identified as the critical ‘new’ public health. The paper goes on to argue that such scholarship offers crucial insights for the production of a critical geography of public health.
