Daniel Chambliss, the Eugene M. Tobin Distinguished Professor of Sociology, was a keynote speaker at the Boston Children’s Hospital Pediatric Pain Management conference on Sept. 30. Chambliss presented “The Routinization of Suffering” at the opening plenary session. The conference was co-sponsored by Harvard Medical School.

Though pediatric pain management is not Chambliss’ field, he was invited to be a part of the conference because of his research for his book Beyond Caring: Hospitals, Nurses and the Social Organization of Ethics (University of Chicago Press, 1996). In 1998, Beyond Caring won the American Sociological Association’s Eliot Freidson Prize for the best medical sociology book in the preceding two years.
