Description

This book contends that the discourse of genetics is recombining our understanding of who we are and the state of our health by redefining what it means to be competent, knowledgeable, responsible and proactive in our professional, clinical and personal lives. It highlights the communicative practices engaged by participants and professionals in genetics clinics as they collectively recombine diverse forms of knowledge to produce new understandings of health and self.
