Applying multimodal textual analysis to the languages and images of on-line
communication forms, Kay Richardson shows, from an applied linguistic
perspective, how the Internet is being used for global, interactive
communication about public health risks. Detailed case studies of the
possible risks posed by SARS, by mobile phones and by the vaccination of
babies against childhood diseases are situated within the context of
research on computer-mediated communication, as well as within the broader
social context of globalization and discourses of risk and trust.
