Vom 10. – 13.September 2017 findet an der Universität in Zürich das 50. Treffen der Societas Linguistica Europaea statt. Dieses Mal steht ein Thema für Kommunikationswissenschaftler mit den Themen Gesundheit und Kommunikation im Fokus.
In context of the 50th meeting of the Societas Linguistica Europaea (Zurich 10th-13th September 2017) we are submitting a proposal for a workshop called >language and health<. The workshop shall provide a platform for researchers to present on-going work in all kind of linguistic subdisciplines. In bringing together scholars from a variety of linguistic fields we aim for new insights in the broad context of language and health. Furthermore, the common research object of health communication may shed light on the functioning of language use in general. In addition, this workshop is intended to initiate a debate about the actual and preferable impact of linguistics in the aspiring field of (critical) medical humanities (cf. Greaves/Evans 2000; Viney et al. 2015; Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences 2014). Moreover, we ask how linguistic research results can be transferred into partner disciplines, medical practice, and medical training. Therefore, we invite the submission of papers in English on all aspects of language and health including, but not limited to the following topics:
– Interaction between patients and medical staff
– Terminology in medical and health related context
– Communication about health in the public sphere
– Discursive construction of medical knowledge
– Health literacy
– Inter- and transdisciplinary research combining linguistics and medicine
– Transfer of linguistic research in medical practice and medical training
Der Call ist leider schon durch, jedoch wird das Programm auch ohne Beitrag m. E. sehr interessant.
