Abstract [en]

This paper is concerned with social representations as embedded in communicative action. Social representations can be understood as taking form in communication at different levels, in mass media, in formalised educational settings and in everyday face-to-face interaction in various social contexts, within as well as outside traditional educational settings. We will here address the communication and construction of meaning that goes on in the interface between the professional/medical world and the everyday world of the patient. The medical encounter is here seen as a pedagogical situation where interpretations of the patient’s suffering as well as medical advice are provided, which the patient will have to make sense of within the context of his or her everyday life. We will here focus on how the patient, in this process, draws on socially shared representations of health and illness, normality and deviance, and how these representations can be explored in the patient’s illness narratives.
