Meeting Description:

British Association for Applied Linguistics' Health & Science Communication
Special Interest Group presents “Experiences of illness and death: learning
from the discourses of realities and fictions”.

Hosted by the Faculty of Well-being, Education and Language Studies The Open
University, Milton Keynes

“Any serious illness is a medical event, but it is lived in narrative terms”
wrote Andrew Solomon in a recent article for The Guardian. This workshop will
focus on these ‘lived’ and ‘narrative’ aspects of the experience of illness
and death from a variety of disciplinary perspectives.

Accounts of illness and dying by patients, carers and healthcare professionals
have been at the heart the medical humanities for several decades. They have
been called upon to better understand patients and to enable patient-centered
care, to improve training and empathy in healthcare professionals and to begin
to assist those who informally support and care for the ill. They have been
investigated from the perspectives of history, sociology, literature, the
visual arts and, more recently, linguistics. At the same time, these disparate
approaches and applications, have tended to leave the field somewhat
fragmented. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers of
different backgrounds who examine and use experiences of illness and death to
discuss and explore the methods and applications that allow us to get the most
out of these rich and powerful sources of evidence.

Confirmed Keynote Speakers:

Dr Julie Ellis, University of Sheffield
(http://www.sheffield.ac.uk/socstudies/staff/staff-profiles/julie-ellis)

Dr Jonathon Tomlinson, NHS The Lawson Practice
(https://abetternhs.wordpress.com/about/)

Registration opens: September 2016


2nd Call for Papers:

The BAAL Health & Science Communication Special Interest Group invites
abstract proposals for 20-minute presentations addressing the themes of the
workshop. We are particularly interested in contributions that discuss what we
can learn from lived experience and first-person narratives, be they fictional
or not, as well as how we can make the most of them. We are also keen to build
theoretical and methodological bridges between the academic disciplines of
linguistics, medical humanities, and health and social care and healthcare
policy and practice, so encourage contributions that showcase different
methods of analysis and/or different contexts of application.

Submission Details:

- Deadline for abstract submissions: 19 September 2016
- Abstracts should be no more than 300 words including references.

Please send abstracts to Zsófia Demjén: zsofia.demjen at open.ac.uk.
