The project investigates the changing uses of the concepts of gender and embodied differences in the treatment of chronic pain. We explore the effects of personalization and rationalization of medicine and global drug shortages on how chronic pain can be managed. The project theorizes chronic pain as an embodied, intersectional phenomenon and explores the temporality of chronicity through questions of age.

The GenDis project conducts interdisciplinary social research on the changing conditions of managing and living with gendered chronic pain.
