Biography

Dr Catherine Dodds is a Senior Lecturer in Health and Social Policy in the School of Interdisciplinary Studies at Glasgow's Crichton Campus in Dumfries. She has a longstanding interest in the way that notions of responsibility are expressed through HIV prevention interventions and policies. She has extensive qualitative research experience into the interaction between social inequality and HIV prevention need among homosexually active men, and among African migrants to the UK. Catherine has led on the development of key HIV policy and planning frameworks and a national HIV prevention needs assessment of Africans in England. Catherine is recognised internationally for her research and policy experience relating to criminal prosecutions for HIV transmission, and she continues to influence colleagues who deliver services and devise HIV policy in the UK and elsewhere. She is currently interested in work that undertakes a critique of the impact of the biomedicalisation of HIV on policy development and lived experience for those closest to the epidemic. 

Research interests

Catherine's research interests all relate to the social and behavioural aspects of HIV and sexual health (in the UK and also globally). These include:

  • concepts of biomedicalisation, pharmaceuticalisation and therapeutic citizenship in relation to HIV treatments and the increasing use of treatment as prevention
  • wellbeing and health inequalities among members of sexual minorities and migrants
  • broader health inequalities in the field of sexual health
  • risk perception and harm reduction as these relate to HIV and sexual health

Grants

Catherine has undertaken research and evaluation for a range of funders including National Institutes for Health Research, Department of Health, Wellcome Trust, as well as statutory and third sector organisations in the UK and globally. 

Supervision

Catherine welcomes approaches from promising students who would like to pursue post-graduate research supervision opportunities related to the following fields of enquiry:

  • concepts of biomedicalisation, pharmaceuticalisation and therapeutic citizenship as they relate to HIV treatments and the increasing use of treatment as prevention
  • wellbeing and health inequalities among members of sexual minorities and migrants as these relate to sexual health and HIV (including critical examinations of concepts such as resilience, health literacy, and stigma)
  • criminal prosecution for HIV transmission (and/or for other activities that may contribute to HIV acquisition including: injecting drug use, sex work, sex between men)

Teaching

In Semester 2 Catherine is co-convening:
