Established in 2008, the Nordic Network for Gender, Body, Health provides a platform for researchers and practitioners working across a diverse set of academic and professional backgrounds from medicine, comparative literature and sociology to philosophy, psychiatry, anthropology, sports and health sciences, and history of science. The network is currently hosted by the Department of Ethnology, History of Religion and Gender Studies at Stockholm University, Sweden. Previously, we were affiliated with the Centre for Women’s and Gender Research (SKOK) at the University of Bergen, Norway.

Exploring from biological, social, cultural, historical, phenomenological and political perspectives, the network seeks to contribute to the deepening and development of our understandings and conceptualisations of issues related to gender, body and health from both within and across disciplinary boundaries.
