9780415672603: Health and Risk Communication: An Applied Linguistic Perspective

Health and Risk Communication provides a critical and comprehensive overview of the core issues surrounding health and risk communication from the perspective of applied linguistics. It outlines the ways applied linguistics differs from other methods of understanding health and risk communication, assesses the benefits and limitations of the approaches used by different scholars in the field, and offers an innovative framework for consolidating past research and charting new directions.

Utilizing data from clinical interactions and everyday life, this book addresses a number of crucial questions including:

  • How are the everyday actions we take around health constructed and constrained through discourse?
  • What is the role of texts in influencing health behaviour, and how are these texts put together and interpreted by readers?
  • How are actions and identities around health and risk negotiated in situated social interactions, and what are the factors that influence these negotiations?
  • How will new technologies like genetic screening influence the way we communicate about health?
  • How does communication about health and risk help create communities and institutions and reflect and reproduce broader ideologies and patterns of power and inequality within societies?

Health and Risk Communication: An Applied Linguistic Perspective is essential reading for advanced students and researchers studying and working in this area.

About the Author:

Rodney H. Jones is Associate Professor of English at City University of Hong Kong.

Review:

‘Rodney Jones forcefully argues for "opening up the circumference" of studies of health and risk communication. The resulting multidimensional work is a tour de force that belongs on the must-read list of every applied discourse analyst who explores everyday talk and social action in relation to health. Jones' command and synthesis of a wide range of relevant discourse approaches and literatures is simply breathtaking. Kudos!’

Heidi E. Hamilton, Georgetown University, USA

‘Rodney Jones' new book offers brilliant and accessible analyses of health risk as an increasingly complex and pervasive concern affecting our social life. Bringing together a wide range of theoretical and methodological influences, Jones navigates the field of health communication with great dexterity, providing the specialist applied linguist, the public health scholar, and anyone else interested in health care communication much food for thought.’

Rick Iedema, University of Technology, Sydney, Australia
