Introduction to Queering Health: critical challenges to normativity in health and healthcare

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapterResearch

Abstract

Queering Health uncovers normative assumptions, practices and discourses as central to the production of difference, which manifests as gender and sexual inequality and other forms of disadvantage and discrimination in health and healthcare. The strength of these perspectives is in critiquing the increasing power of biomedical sciences in order to contest the hegemony of unexamined healthcare assumptions that deny difference and thereby sustain inequality. These queer and critical theories trouble neoliberal healthcare economics and biomedical scientific norms that operate in every sphere of healthcare, providing a range of radical tools to destabilise, deconstruct or reimagine binaries, discourses, normative categories or moral ideals prevalent in the pursuit of health
