Abstract

「沒有理論基礎,我們做任何研究的類推性都會受到極大的限制。從這個角度來看,理論甚至比樣本本身和生態效度更重要。舉例來說,因為存在共同的理論架構,我們才可以將糖尿病的研究結果概化至愛滋病或新型冠狀病毒研究。這種以理論概推的方式使我們得以充分發展健康傳播領域。所以我們應該牢牢記住,理論是我們研究的根本。」

「就亞洲地區的健康傳播理論化而言,我把『轉型』一詞作為思考的基礎。我們應該認真考慮如何以亞洲的地緣與特殊性,提出這樣的問題:『從亞洲地區出發進行理論化,在亞洲地區之中進行理論化,以及從亞洲地區的實證觀察導出對情境的理論化,到底意味著什麼?』我將我的答案置於我所看到的霸權健康傳播理論以及亞洲內部健康傳播理論化的陷阱之中。」

This dialogue features Dr. Teri Thompson, an outstanding scholar in health communication and Editor-in-Chief of Health Communication, and Dr. Mohan Dutta, a leading health communication scholar with a research focus on the Global South. Dr. Thompson describes the significance and scope of health communication theories and critical ethical issues tied to health communication research. Dr. Dutta shares his views on theorizing health communication in Asia and relevant challenges and opportunities. Dr. Dutta proposes the use of hegemonic communication theories and Asian imaginaries to advance theoretical development in culturally rich and diverse Asia. Both scholars provide advice to young Asian scholars who are interested in pursuing health communication research.
