The Nordic Network Gender, Body, Health is based at the Centre for Gender
Research at Uppsala University, Sweden and had its first network meeting
in January 2008. With the aim of achieving productive interdisciplinary

medicine, comparative literature, philosophy, sociology, anthropology,
cultural geography, sports- and health sciences, psychiatry, social
psychology, and history of science.

Research at the University of Iceland.
