Adhering to or rejecting the normal? 

Take part in our critical conversation around “normality” and fill out our survey: soscisurvey.de/BAN 

The apparently neutral label “normal” often entails a judgment about which human properties are good and which are not. It often perpetuates systems of privilege and power and leads to social exclusion. The goal of the study is to gain a better understanding of how people view normality and to promote awareness of the dangers of linking statistical data and normatively loaded normality. For this purpose, we want to make people think about the term ‘normal’, about its (mis)use as a label, and about its potential dangers.  

We kindly invite you to take part in our critical conversation around “normality”. What would be lost if we stopped using the term ‘(ab)normal’ when referring to other persons, refrained from labelling persons or their properties as (ab)normal? Can’t we replace the term with a more accurate, and less stigmatizing one?
