Gender, Medicine, and the Body examines topical themes related to
medicine and the body as they interact with gender, through
portrayals by a variety of fields and texts.  Theoretical works are
positioned against primary texts, the latter drawn from both fiction
and non-fiction works.  Both Western and non-Western cultural
traditions receive scrutiny.  Topics include cross-cultural inquiry
into gendered systems of healing, feminist critiques of medical
models, critical perspectives on gender and medicalization, and the
gendering of bodies through technological meditation.
