Introduction

Suzanne Fraser's research focuses on addiction, the body, health and the self. She is program leader for NDRI's Social Studies of Addiction Concepts Research Program (addictionconcepts.com).

Suzanne is the author of a number of books on the body and health in society and culture. Her most recent book is entitled Habits: Remaking addiction, co-authored with David Moore and Helen Keane, and her previous works cover a range of topics. Her first book, Cosmetic Surgery, Gender and Culture, was based on her PhD research. Later books focused on methadone maintenance treatment (Substance and substitution: Methadone subjects in liberal societies, with kylie valentine, 2008), hepatitis C (Making disease, making citizens: The politics of hepatitis C, with Kate Seear, 2011) and vanity, the body and the self Vanity: 21st century selves (with Claire Tanner and JaneMaree Maher, 2013). She has also co-edited a collection of essays on drugs and addiction (The drug effect: Health, crime and society, with David Moore, 2011).

Suzanne's main research focus at present is her Australian Research Council-funded Future Fellowship research program. Entitled 'Analysing and comparing concepts of addiction for improved health and social outcomes in Australia', this research explores the notions of addiction underpinning social and health policy and service provision in Australia and Canada. Drawing on qualitative interviews with policy makers and service providers, policy analysis and an assessment of addiction diagnostic tools, the aim is to draw out the explicit and implicit assumptions and metaphors at work in addiction responses, comparing two national contexts and identifying opportunities for exchange and improvement. An additional arm of this program of research has also been added in 2013. This arm explores concepts of addiction in Swedish policy, aiming to create a dataset to allow original comparisons between Australia, Canada and Sweden.

Suzanne is also lead investigator on a second ARC-funded study (2014-2016). This project uses an established methodology to collect individual accounts of addiction, treatment and recovery and present these in textual, audio and re-enacted clips on a publicly accessible website. The website will become a key resource for doctors and other service providers in training, as well as policymakers and individuals affected by addiction. Its intention is to present rigorously collected personal insights to improve understandings of addiction and counter stigmatisation and stereotypes.

In addition to these activities, Suzanne is also working on an NHMRC-funded project, 'Understanding and preventing hepatitis C transmission within sexual partnerships'. The project team comprises Carla Treloar (UNSW - lead investigator), Joanne Bryant (UNSW) and Tim Rhodes (London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine). This interview-based study will explore understandings and practices of hepatitis C transmission prevention among people who inject drugs together within sexual partnerships. How do couples negotiate transmission risk, especially where access to safe injecting equipment is limited? How do standard equipment prevention measures impact on risk within sexual partnerships? How do issues of gender shape risk and risk practice? Based across NSW and Victoria, the project will run until 2015.

Grants: Suzanne's research has been funded by a range of grants from university, government and national competitive sources.
