Title: Language and HIV/AIDS
Edited By: Christina Higgins
Bonny Norton
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847692191
Series Title: Critical Language and Literacy Studies
Description:

This volume focuses on the role of language in the construction of
knowledge about HIV/AIDS in diverse regions of the world. The collection
of studies yields helpful insights about the discursive construction of
this knowledge in both formal and informal contexts, while demonstrating
how the tools of applied linguistics can be exercised to reveal a deeper
understanding of the production and dissemination of this knowledge. The
authors use a range of qualitative methodologies to critically explore the
role of language and discourse in educational contexts in which various and
sometimes competing forms of knowledge about HIV/AIDS are constructed. They
draw on various forms of discourse analysis, ethnography, and social
semiotics to interpret meaning-making practices in HIV/AIDS education in
Australia, Cambodia, Burkina Faso, Hong Kong, India, South Africa,
Tanzania, Thailand, and Uganda.
