「医療・介護の現場におけるコミュニケーション―『福祉言語学』の視点に立って―」(Communication in Japanese Healthcare Contexts: From the Perspective of Welfare Linguistics)

April 25 - December 12, 2018


The topic of this workshop is communication in Japanese healthcare contexts, one of the major issues the Japanese linguist Munemasa Tokugawa (1930-1999) included in his concept of “welfare linguistics”. The aim of the workshop is to examine healthcare communication from various angles and provide a forum for discussion between linguists and medical professionals. Reflecting Japan’s aging society, a special focus is on communication in elderly care.

The workshop will be held in Japanese. It is jointly organized with the National Institute for Japanese Language and funded by Friedrich-Ebert Foundation.
