This issue of NORA brings together three articles that could be seen as addressing the question “What is normal?” in three very different ways. These articles demonstrate that this seemingly simple question opens up possibilities for an immense variety of inquiries. All three could be said to be dealing with the making normal of certain heterosexual practices. Two of them explicitly address how heteronormativity (a term well known for the NORA readers versed in queer feminist theory) and personhood are co-constituted, while the third one is a much-needed cartography of assumptions within research on violence and gender.
