This book critically addresses the role of language in our collective
construction of 'normal' bodies. Addressing a range of concerns linked with
visible and invisible, chronic and terminal conditions, the volume probes
issues in and around patient and caregiver accounts. Focusing on body
conditions associated with breast cancer, Alzheimer's disease, (type-1)
diabetes, epilepsy, partial hearing and autism, the book draws on a range
of critical theories to contest collectively assembled notions of
'abnormality,' 'disability' and 'impairments.' It also addresses the need
for applied sociolinguists to take account of how our researching practices
- the texts we produce, the orientations we assume, the theoretical
grounds from which we proceed-- create 'meanings' about bodies and
'normalcy,' and the importance of remaining ever vigilant and civically
responsible in what we do or claim to do.

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics
