This special issue of lambda nordica on Queering Health and Biomedicine queries the processes of biomedicalization, the structures of biomedical knowledge and the force of biomedicine as an institution of social control, and aims to expand the object of biomedical and health research and practice to the specific experiences and bodies of queer people, along with others who do not fit into dominant normative frameworks. The issue poses questions like: How is biomedicine constructed and practiced in relation to embodied differences? What are the affective textures of biomedical encounters and practices? How are biomedical interventions invoked and represented in visual and literary culture? The special issue showcases scholarship from the Nordic Network Gender, Body, Health.
