Call for Papers: Towards a Global Sociology of Trans and Gender Diverse Health, Health Sociology Review

June 15, 2020

In the wake of renewed (if not overdue) awareness in the health and wellbeing needs of trans and gender diverse people, the Health Sociology Review is launching a special issue on Trans and Gender Diverse Health. 

The special issue aims to enhance knowledge on what supports and complicates the provision of health care and support for trans and gender diverse people in different parts of the world.

Both empirical research and theoretical contributions are sought on topics such as: 

  • Healthcare expectations and experiences
  • Systems and training for inclusive and affirming healthcare
  • Relationships between public, private, and community health systems
  • Impact of violence, poverty, and homelessness on health and well-being
  • Interplay of media, political, policy, and research perspectives
  • Community representation and leadership, including peer inclusion
  • Challenges collecting, sharing, and reporting accurate and meaningful data
  • Experiences and pressures for health and other professionals

With an emphasis on different cultural contexts and health systems, and diversity gender expressions and identities, including transgender, gender diverse, non-binary, genderqueer, and others, this is a great opportunity for anyone working in the field of trans and gender diverse health. 

Deadline for full papers: 15 June 2020
