This edited book addresses ways in which "bodies"-conceived broadly- get languaged, and ways in which ideas of "normalcy" and "normal" bodies are held in place and reproduced. The articles show how it is through this medium that people with ailments or "unusual" bodies get positioned and slotted in certain ways. Calling attention to a host of discourses- biomedical, societal, poststructuralist- the chapters pierce the general veil of silence that we have collectively drawn regarding how some of our most intimate body (dis)functions impact our everyday living and sense of "normalcy".
