Critical Cultural Studies in Global Health Communication

Series Editors:

Global changes in migratory patterns, the increasing health inequalities faced by the poor, the health risks faced by communities at the margins of global societies, and the communicative nature of health problems have drawn additional attention to the relevance of studying health communication processes across global cultures.This series challenges Western-centric ideas of health and human behavior by publishing theoretically provocative, pedagogically critical volumes addressing the intersection of critical communication principles and practices with health concepts and structures.The series editors seek book proposals that address

  • the storied nature of health communication practices that are globally situated
  • structurally-constituted nature of health communication
  • individual and collective processes of communicating through which cultures negotiate meanings of health
  • local-global processes of participation and organizing through which local communities seek to bring about transformations in unhealthy global structures

The intent of the series is foregrounding knowledge that creates openings for transforming structures of injustice and exploitation underlying global health inequalities.

Books in the series are single authored books or strategic edited volumes making coherent arguments about the intersections of globalization and health. Although the series occasionally publishes research monographs based on comparative global research, the emphasis is on publishing topical books that can be used both as advanced undergraduate-graduate texts as well as reference materials.
