Welcome to the home of the Health and Science Communication Special Interest Group

The Health and Science Communication Special Interest Group is an offshoot of the British Association for Applied Linguistics that focuses on the study of applied linguistics in relation to health and science communication.

We bring together researchers who combine concepts and methods from applied linguistics with those from other disciplines (such as sociology, medical humanities, anthropology, media studies, psychology, cultural studies and more…)

We’re always looking for new members to help build our research community. Historically, our group has held in-person annual workshops (see our archived events for more details) but we are also developing a broader and more inclusive community online (stay tuned for our upcoming digital series in 2021).

Subscribe to our mailing list and follow us on social media for updates on the world of health and science communication. If you have any ideas, resources or events that you would like to bring to the group we would love to talk with you about them.
