The Dr Elizabeth Newnham Session


In this Session, Dr Elizabeth Newnham joins us to talk about her various journeys, from politics to midwifery and back; from Adelaide to Dublin and back; and getting ethics approval to conduct an ethnography in the maternity setting.

I thought it was wonderful. I would recommend anybody who is thinking of doing a PhD, to do one because it is very flexible, its creative, it is inspiring. I mean the downside is the money…it is rubbish…
