AUTHOR

SUMMARY

This collection of essays by internationally established researchers examines the interrelations between illness, disability, health, society, and culture as well as how "narratives" have emerged and been utilized within these areas. The contributors examine the various forms and aspects of broken narratives, a term which is used to describe narratives from people who in one way or another have trouble telling stories at all - be it due to injury disability, dementia, pain, grief, or psychological trauma. This book offers a broad overview and critical analysis of the present state of the field of "illness narratives," encompassing clinical case studies, ethnographic field studies and autobiographical case studies. The book will be of interest to those within health, medicine, nursing, psychology, social work, sociolinguistics, discourse and narrative studies.Hydén, Lars-Christer is the author of 'Health, Illness and Culture', published 2008 under ISBN 9780415988742 and ISBN 0415988748.
